Bees are clever

Great new article on how bees are protecting themselves in their hives from pesticides. They know when pollen is contaminated with pesticides ad seal off their hive cells. Smarter than us.

The Alliance for Wild Ethics

I am reading a wonderful new book called 'Becoming Animal' by David Abram who is one of the founding members of an organisation called The Alliance for Wild Ethics.
I am very excited about this organisation as they have wonderful people involved and I find my thinking replicated in their attitude. This is where the internet comes into its own for me as I would have never found these people without it.

green flashes through the wind
as parrots turn
showing secrets underwing.
River sounds wake me
and soothe.
the earth rises through
my typing fingers
to tell its story.
