No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings. - William Blake
We live in central British Columbia; an area of trees, lakes and rolling hills called The Cariboo. One of the characteristic wild sounds, heard across the lakes, is the call of the loon. However, part of me will always be connected with Africa, the continent of my birth, home of the African Elephant.
I spent a few years commercially growing things: landscaping, running a three-acre vegetable garden and a hydroponic lettuce greenhouse. I now concentrate most of my "growing" energy on the land around our house, along with its bird-life (that's a Pileated Woodpecker on the tree behind Maddi and me), plant life and "hand-made" vegetable garden.
I sit upon cold ground

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts. - Bertrand Russell
