grateful for sasquatch

Today I am grateful for Sasquatch! This is not about your existence which for me is potential, unproven and less likely than I had once thought -- yet in another way, MORE real. This is not about you as a specimen or phenomenon or a sensationalized version of yourself. This is not about colonizing you, invading your space or tracking you down so we can write your name into some fancy book to hang you on our phylogenetic tree. This is about what you inspire in me. This is about how you help me to love and respect nature more. This is about how you remind me to be more human. This is about how you make me rest in the unattainable. I'm sure Enoch Emery would get this. This is about how you move me past my own tame dualisms into a third space. This is about the gifts you leave on our doorstep. A leaf, a rock, something you wove together out of vines or grass. This is about kindness and respect. So, whether or not you exist in a text book, in an array of tree structures you have built or in a Florida swamp, you are loved. You've had an impact.
