‘An ecological understanding allows us to identify “things” – rain, cloud, river – at the same time that it reminds us that these identities are fluid. Even mountains erode, and the ground beneath us moves in giant plates. It reminds us that – while it’s useful to have a word for that thing called a cloud – when we really get down to it, all we can really point to is a series of flows and relationships that sometimes intersect and hold together long enough to be a “cloud.”‘ (How To Do Nothing)
