    'On the prairie there is sometimes a quiet so absolute that it allows one to begin again, to love the future. Such moments are a surprising blessing because the grasslands, at least in northeastern Colorado where I walk, are weighed by the future -- they are recklessly cultivated and overgrazed...' (Adams, p.157).
