Earth, still going strong

Recently, I came across some splendid nature videos on YouTube.  It was here I found NaturesFairy’s channel.  One such video titled, ( My favorite thing to do every spring is to go out searching for Wood Frogs) is something we often do in our area as well . Earth is four-and-a-half-billion-years-old. There’s been life on it for nearly that long, 3.8 billion years.   Today, a telephone pole was knocked down by a motorist in my neighborhood.  The consequence, no electricity.  Accordingly, I opened the shades to bring a full spectrum and dynamic light into the room to read by.   I have read The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History by Elizabeth Kolbert, (Massachusetts) several times.  NaturesFairy video, directs me to reference it once again on the topic of Frogs. Amphibians in general. (read the first chapter)   Helen Keller has said that modern life has removed us too far from a direct contact with nature.  A quotation I happen to be in agreement with.  Are we are witnessing a similar mass extinction event happening in the geologic blink of an eye as Kolbert writes in The Sixth Extinction? I judge we will be ok, or at least the planet will.  It’s nice to see  someone be concerned about our natural world and our diverse natural science and  NaturesFairy’s videos  are up to the task.

Wood Frog

Gray treefrog?

Our thoughts, visions and fantasies have a physical reality. A thought is made of hundreds of electrochemical impulses.

Carl Sagan, 1934 to 1996

it’s not spring unless the herring are swimming up local rivers, en route to their summer spawning areas. So put down those cell phones, pack up your young explorers and scientists, and experience nature at its finest in Middleboro Massachusetts, at Oliver Mill Park. Enjoy local history and a whole lot more.

Water Snakes at Oliver Mill Park

I think that I cannot preserve my health and spirits, unless I spend four hours a day at least – and it is commonly more than that – sauntering through the woods and over the hills and fields, absolutely free from all worldly engagements.Henry David Thoreau

Osprey back at Nelson Memorial Park, Plymouth, MA.

Armed with only a 300MM lens, we were at a disadvantage for close up shots without disturbing the Osprey. Better than no images at all.  Tomorrow is just a few hours away.

“Illusions can be pleasant, but the rewards of truth are enormously better.”




When I grow up, I want to be a Scientist just like Hollywood actors, sports figures and politicians along with some of my friends who insist the Earth is only 2500 years old.

“Frederick Douglass taught that literacy is the path from slavery to freedom. There are many kinds of slavery and many kinds of freedom, but reading is still the path.”
