What‘s missing? “To know is not all,“ said John Burroughs, “it is only half. To love is the other half.“ He‘s not talking heart-thumping romance. He‘s not talking R-rated passion. He‘s talking attention to detail. He‘s talking receptiveness. He‘s talking patience, and satisfaction with hints and traits. He‘s talking reality.
Real reality, the New England woodlands on a crisp late-summer‘s day.
