"Any fool can tell a story. Take a few odds and ends of things that happen to you, dress them up, shuffle them about, add a dash of excitement, a little color, and there you have it."
- Lloyd Alexander, The Arkadians
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed your blog. I signed myself up to receive it by email and read it top to bottom every posting (we used to say "cover to cover"). Your pictures are amazing, and I hope you and Ed are assembling some kind of permanent resting place for them.
Most important to me was your deliberate focus on our footprint on the earth. No place was visited without your full knowledge of its geological and biological history. And you write so well. . .and pull perfect quotes out of your hat!
Best to all of you,
