Two drawings of mountains from our friend Micah Bornstein.

Micah and I have an ongoing letter correspondence about place. We discuss what it means to find one landscape in another? For example, seeing a mountain in a child’s toy, a pile of laundry, or a drawing, when you are nowhere near the mountains. Thinking about mountains is a way to renew a personal connection with the landscape. You can substitute any place or landscape that moves you–a desert, an aquifer, a forest–see if you find the wild spaces as you go about your daily routines.

Another mountain to consider, National Public Radio (US) made a recent post on their blog about visualizing another type of mountain–the mountain of carbon emissions that is created in one day in New York City. Watch the video here.
