All around us are tiny micro-environments that seem like nothing to us, but are life and death to other life. This is “just” a sagebrush, but it is Home, Safety, Life to some other creature. Nothing in nature is “just” anything. It all has importance, and needs to be treated with respect. These micro-environments exist everywhere on earth. Discovering them wherever we live gives us a rich sense of wonder and expands our larger picture of the life in which we are embedded. It increases our respect for and delight in Life. Share with us ones you discover, where you live.
