I love your carefully collected & annotated flowers—–and just discovered the toys.
There’s something amazing about a world in which we can enjoy—even though it may be virtually—such an abundance of beautiful things.
—-Do you suppose that’s why people don’t realize what a precarious state the beauty of the actual world is in—? It’s so easy to summon up a virtual representation.
Well—I’m hoping that it alerts them to all that might be lost –And how much more than they can imagine is here in the over-looked realm of natural life, though it’s dwindling at such a breathtaking, heart-stopping rate.
At least we can enjoy the beauty in a passive manner, not harming anyone.
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe – John Muir
What Plants Perceive
people have lost their connexion with the earth; they hang, as it were, in the air–
‘It is impossible to measure what we see not’
swearing allegiance to the particulars of the world
“You were made and set here to give voice to this, your astonishment”
Scarlet he thought the most beautiful of all colours
we are “at precisely that moment in our history when we fear that our very lives may depend upon how well we understand nature and our own responsibilities and limits within it.”
