The Beidawushan Series: Introduction

As I leave Taiwan, what will I take with me?

I think one of the most important things I will take with me is a better ability to see the connections and understand things holistically.

The sky is blue, and there is a peak covered with hemlock trees. A cloud is forming on the right side of the peak. In the foreground there is a pine tree and a rhodederon.

Throughout my time in Taiwan, again and again and again, I have observed how geology, climate, ecology, language, culture, history, transportation, physical health, food, water, and everything else are all tied together.

I want to share that. So I will use Beidawushan as my example.

Beidawushan shows part (though only a part) of why I am to attached to Taiwan.

Looking up at a foggy forest canopy with many trees and lots of mist.

I hope that readers will find Beidawushan itself interesting, and that this will be useful for anybody who is going to go to Beidawushan. But more important than learning about Beidawushan itself is getting a better sense about how things connect together as part of a whole.

If you read this series, and are then even just a little better at observing systems and making connections between seemingly separate things in your own life, then I will have succeeded.
