Often in this life we encounter those under the self-created impression they are already in the know, or in fact, know everything. Aside from it simply not being possible to know everything, folks of this mind-state are at times the least informed because they stand in their own way, blocking their own channels of receiving and further expansion of thought and being.
Society loves to create a one-size-fits-all box, label it and assume it to be the "catch-all" for ease and filing purposes. However that reflects society, not necessarily reality.
In this day of quick to assume labels, my actions have frequently been boxed up as passion-based. The presumption being that Wild Love Preserve is merely a personal “project of passion" singularly focused on wild horses, instead of those same ears listening and recognizing their reflections equally exist in this hand-mirror of humanity. While they may commend my passion, they sidestep Wild Love Preserve's actual truth in being and that this is an environmental shift project centering squarely on mankind's interrelation to the whole.
Passion is wonderful. It is to be honored, respected and nurtured, however Wild Love Preserve speaks to cause and effect, and our responsibility to the sustainable well-being of wild environments in a factual regard. Human beings have created a condition which we must in turn acknowledge and address in a responsible, all-encompassing manner. This is not someone's else's problem to fix, nor is it in our distant backyards. This is at our front porch and impacts every one of us directly, whether you are aware of this fact or not.
Passion is not the nucleus of this wild project, but rather, and by design, Wild Love Preserve is firmly rooted in two-legged accountability in relation to the current and lasting health of our existence and operations. This wild mirror reflects each of us, the integrity of our humanity, our past, present and futures. -A. Maki

"Wild Love Preserve is not but a mere project of passion, this is a human accountability project.

Project WLP centers upon humanity, sustainability, two-legged accountability and our responsibility to the whole. "
