Why is this piece your Trace Fossil?

"I find purpose in preserving farms, rurality, natural spaces and wildlife through photography and poetry. If any of my poems or photos outlive me, it will be they who are potentially important, not me, not my name, and not my bones a million years from now. If any of my art fossils teach one person about the importance of nature and farms, that is success. “So much depends,” says William Carlos Williams, not just on red wheelbarrows but awareness."
