Omega Institute Sharing Memories of Place: Creating a New Family Tradition
Creating a New Family Tradition
Land has memory. Just walking along a road you can often see the remaining marks of past land use. Here in the Northeast you can see the patterns of agriculture in stone walls, once boundaries of fields and property, now running through woodlands—an impression of past economy and past society. Recalling with a critical and cataloging eye the landscapes of our youth, as well as the current landscapes we live in, can be a useful tool to assess the natural world and to help ground us in it.

Omega Institute Hope, Connection & Survival in the Wild by Les Stroud
As a young boy I played outside my cottage in the forest, pretending to survive. I made pillows out of moss and put branches up for crude shelter roofs. I talked to trees and bugs and animals. It was my escape. My refuge from a mediocre life in suburbia. I dreamed of being like Jacques Cousteau. I dreamed of being like Tarzan. And, lo and behold, what is Survivorman if not the perfect hybrid of those two dreams? But in the adult world of television production, my reason for those dreams—connecting to nature—disappeared into the din of business, money, and schedules.  More
