I have been greatly interested by a book that I was kindly sent by a friend, The Speech of the Birds by Farīdu’d-Dīn ‘Attār.  This is an English-language presentation, by Peter Avery, of a masterpiece of medieval Persian literature. Mantiqu’t-Tair
"Humankind needs to again pay heed to the voices of the birds, the animals and the green trees of Paradise; to return home to nature; to become once more a simple hair in the locks of our divine and infinitely wise Friend."
Yes and yes. I've been writing much the same, through a different lens. It's not just a nice idea, It's essential. A major reorienting of ourselves with and as part of the natural world is required as we move through these massive changes. It's always the obvious that's so easily missed. Thank you for this thoughtful and wise reflection.
