Outside/In: On Loving Nature and Living with Parkinson’s
A collection of poems by naturalist Ed Bieber about living with Parkinson’s disease and coping through nature. I also came to make
more of the fact that my love of the great outdoors had
been whetted by those youthful hours amid the natural
splendors right outside the door of my family home.
Harriman was an embarrassment of riches, by comparison,
but I was convinced that people didn’t actually need to
range so far to appreciate what nature has in store.
In 1976 I set out on my own, first as an independent
outdoor educator, then as the founder and director
of The Nature Place Day Camp. I have been doing
as I once imagined I could, sitting on that rock –
happily, heartily making others at home in my world.
