Excerpt from Chapter 22 Windshield Biology →
This excerpt is about biology, nature and healing :
When I had conducted field studies before my transplant, my ultimate source of satisfaction was often the accomplishment of having collected the data.

I can’t touch the birds, but somehow, they are touching me.
As spring progresses, the prairie comes to life. With each trip, the landscape becomes greener – grain sprouting, alfalfa growing taller, and golden bean blooming brighter along the roadside. I spot the pale purple flower of crocus in the weathered grass. I drift from pond to pond, happy to flow with the nature that surrounds me. An excerpt from the chapter Windshield Biology
