After reading another blogs post on Earth Day, I couldn't help but record a few thoughts of my own. He reflected on Silent Spring and the tremondous changes that a single book written carefully but passionately made in the world.
When I stop to think about where my own concern for the environment comes from I have to stop and think of people and my own exposure to places.
In my mid twenties I had the opportunity to travel up a remote river in the Darien jungle. I saw a pair of macaws flitting from tree to tree. Until later I didn't realize what a rare sight it was.
