A Quote by Alan Gussow on earth, life, and place

The catalyst that converts any physical location - any environment if you will - into a place, is the process of experiencing deeply.  A place is a piece of the whole environment that has been claimed by feelings.  Viewed simply as a life-support system, the earth is an environment.  Viewed as a resource that sustains our humanity, the earth is a collection of places.
