This evening I went to explore the recently opened Milwaukee Rotary Centennial Arboretum-- a new green jewel of collaboration and imagination near the Urban Ecology Center. It is a meditative and bewitching space. In the quiet of leggy flowers
and undulating grasses, it's difficult to believe that this sanctuary is
only a mile from the heart of the city.
While strolling through the grassy trails I savored the thought that 50 years from now, when I am 76 years old, there will be a forest here.
