1998-99: Transience, Permanence, and Commitment

Volume 7: 1998-1999

In our lives of movement and impermanence, how do we strengthen our commitment to the environment as we change our commitment to place? Authors reflecting on questions of identity, belonging, and connection in the midst of mobility and change prompt us to develop a sense of commitment and kinship with the land, even those places that are only temporarily in our lives.
