For the second year, we’re making February €œLove of Nature, Nature of Love € month on Wilderness Interface Zone. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, all month long we’ll publish poetry, essays, blocks of fiction, art, music (mp3s), video or other media that address the subject of love while making references to nature. Or it could go the other way around: We’ll publish work about nature that also happens to give a nod to love. That presents a wide field of possibilities. We’re seeking submissions of original work or you can also send favorite works by others that have entered public domain. So if you have a sonnet you’ve written to someone dear to your heart–even and perhaps especially your dog–please consider sending it to WIZ. See the submissions page in the navigation bar above.
Also, February 24th is WIZ’s birthday. We’ll be two years old €”a toddler now. To celebrate, a couple of posts will offer presents to our readers. Because without you, dear readers, where would we be?
There’s more than a slight hint of thaw in earth and air. The light is growing longer. The first waves of the Canadian geese migration are rolling through the southern Utah county where I live. Hen-and-chicks and stork’s bill are beginning to preen. The coyotes are pairing off. February is a good month to warm things up. Got love? Celebrate it here on WIZ.
