Pando  Populus is the largest and oldest life form on earth in Utah. Its root system is immense and it is sick and needs our care. It has become a symbol of our  interconnected web of life. What we do affects everything else. It became the metaphor for the Seizing an Alternative Ecology Conference. Anna, Zhihe and I went and prayed and we moved by its beauty. All nature is alive, "The goal of life is to make your heart beat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with nature." - Joseph Campbell
