Hi prairie friends! My name is Cindy, and I’m a writer who has a passion for the Midwestern tallgrass prairie, the landscape of the little corner of the world where I live and work. Every Tuesday, I encourage you to take a moment and enjoy a few words, images, and experiences from the Illinois prairie that we’ll “hike” together. As the year unfolds, you’ll follow the prairie through all four diverse seasons.
The prairie has so much to tell us about paying attention, cultivating gratitude for the natural world, and wisdom for living. I can’t wait to share some glimpses of the tallgrass with you!
