Have you noticed how nature manages to teach us remarkable things, sometimes about our own lives and sometimes about life itself? In his play As You Like It, Shakespeare wrote, "And this our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything." And these words echo the sentiments of Mike Fink.
