We began publishing Minding Nature in 2008, shortly after the death of the founder of the Center for Humans and Nature, Strachan Donnelley. Now, with our Spring/Summer 2021 issue, against the backdrop of the dire experiences that virtually all of nature and humanity have been through, we pause with a sigh of loss and for a breath of hope for new beginnings. Some fundamentals persist, such as the need for recollection, reflection, and respect for all people and for the interdependence humans share with all forms and systems of life on Earth. These are qualities that we try to make hallmarks of each and every issue, but here we do so in a special way. This is a legacy issue largely devoted to previously published works, with only minor alterations. I dare say that many other past Minding Nature articles would also merit inclusion here, and we may continue the practice with a “From the Archive” feature in some future issues. This time we asked the members of the Minding Nature editorial team to select something to republish and to introduce it with a brief note about the enduring significance of the subject it addresses and the personal meaning that it had and continues to have for our readers. Past ways of making sense together may be rediscovered to suggest new forms of action for a more just, resilient, and flourishing future. Perhaps that may happen in the following pages.
