I have collaborated with Green Writers Press on some projects in the past; now, enthused by their new magazine The Hopper, I had a Q&A with one of its editors, Jenna Gersie.

"For The Nature Fix, which hits bookstores this week, Williams bounced around the planet talking to naturalists, scientists, and government workers to get to the bottom of our complex relationship with our environment, which turns out to be both intensely physical and psychological."

Yes, you are reading the title correctly and no, you don't have to be a Liberal to believe in (or act on) Climate awareness. Because anthropogenic climate change is an equal opportunity destroyer. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/02/conservatives-unveil-plan-to-fight-climate-change/

As if they'd stepped out of a novel ... except that these monkey-wrenchers are real, and serious about resetting humankind's relationship to our common environment.

A baby sandpiper needs to learn how to find food. So well done, and utterly charming.

"The most important thing to do is find your gratitude for life. Take stock of your strengths and give thanks for what you have, and for the joys you've been given. Because that is the fuel. That love for life can act like grace for you to defend life.

So don't get too solemn. Don't just spend all your time gritting your teeth. Laugh out loud. Enjoy a kind of wild joy. Ah! Now I have time, to break free from what had stopped me before. Now I've time. This time. To realize my inter-being with all life."

Darwin was born today in 1809, so it’s his birthday! I’m especially excited because next week I head off for the Galapagos Islands. Blue-footed Boobies, Marine Iguanas and, of course, Darwin’s finches – little birds that eventually gave Darwin evidence he needed to support his ideas about evolution.

It’s intriguing that Darwin didn’t have an “ah-hah” moment when he collected the birds. He even combined specimens from different islands – a mistake that made more work for ornithologists who actually identified the “blackbirds” etc. as 12 different species of finches.

Darwin has long fascinated scholars, but “The Book That Changed America”, just published, is distinctive. Author Randall Fuller brings readers into America on the cusp of the Civil War and claims that slavery and race – not religion – were on the minds of intellectuals who first read Darwin.

Transcendental thinkers like Thoreau and Emerson saw theories in “The Origin of Species” as evidence for the unity of mankind. In other words, Darwin’s ideas supported the abolitionist’s moral crusade.

The Unity of Mankind is a very powerful idea right now. I had no idea Darwin's reach was so broad.
