Constants in a time of change

With our world reeling from COVID-19 and its uncertainties, the constants in life comfort us.

Here in southern Colorado, we see the signs of emerging spring – bluebirds return, green colors the landscape’s edges, wet snow lies atop the mountains. These glimpses of renewal strengthen us, especially when our daily lives are upended by health and economic gut-punches from a pandemic.

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night,
and spring after winter.”
― Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

  • "My family put 720 acres under conservation easement in 2009. We did it to protect the integrity of the property and to help secure the water rights to the irrigated hay land in perpetuity. In this age of agricultural and economic uncertainty, conservation easements are the thing to do."
