Fragments from Floyd

Eco-links and Down Mountain

I’m still playing catch-up from our trip and have some clips from the SEJ daily mailing list I wanted to keep, so thought I’d share. Most as you can see are related to the biggest ecological disaster on US soil in my 62 years. How many more such despoilations can the planet endure and still support 9 billion of us?

So this is the limit of my blogging for this morning. I have to head down Bent Mountain (in the fog as it’s looking at this moment) to record what I think is my 35th radio essay at WVTF. It is time-critical–the piece I posted here two weeks ago about seeing the fire flies rising from the grasses–and I appreciate the station making an effort to broadcast it before it goes stale.

Next week we have the grand daughters with us, so there should at least be kid-dog-chicken pix but not likely many complete thoughts or extensive blogging.

  1. I knew it! I knew it! The firefly piece would be magic as an audio essay. I am so glad it has been chosen for this summer. The listeners will love it.
    Congratulations.
