How You Will Be Forever Changed
At first the changes will be small : you'll dare to visit the wilderness more often, your fears of wild animals will be replaced with wonder and respect, guide books and wildlife magazines will pile up on your nightstand. Next you'll start learning the Latin names of plants and animals, attending lectures given by geologists and botanists, and finding yourself mentally escaping to the preserve at stressful moments. When you start hoping to meet scientists and naturalists at the preserve and wondering where the other people who want to protect vernal pools are, the transformation is complete. You've fallen in love with nature and are a better person because of it.
Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you thought could never be yours.
