I recently went hiking with a friend in the Angeles National Forest. We manage to get together on the trail about once a month. Our hikes are a great way to get out into nature – and to catch up, socialize, and solve the world’s problems. It was a perfect morning and we picked a great trail – a 10 mile out-and-back that promised spectacular vistas, pine forests, mountain geology - postcard quality stuff.
We were well along on our hike when we reached a signpost noting that we were…Continue

So, as I have mentioned in posts on my other blog, my son and I have started this year trying to re-nature our lives. Whether hanging up birdfeeders, saving bits of fruit to feed to the deer in the woods surrounding our home or even increasing the number of plants in our home, we are all IN!
One of the recent efforts that has made me the happiest has been quite simple: I printed out photos of the two of us out in nature and hung them in the common area. Daily, we get to look at these…Continue

Fifty years ago to this very day—September 27, 1962—your world-changing book Silent Spring was first published. Though you did not live to see the full revolution that ensued, rest assured that the book’s impact has been immense: the environmental movement, Environmental Protection Agency, banning of various pesticides, Earth Day, . . . on and on.
It’s not surprising, then, that for most people, the name Rachel Carson still brings to mind an ardent activist bravely…Continue

Repeated experience makes us more comfortable. Airplane traveling, driving in rush hour on roundabouts, or speaking in front of a crowd can be unnerving experiences at first. Amazingly, sometimes, they become second nature with exposure and practice. I never realized until recently however, that an experience I took for granted, that I assumed to be a human birthright, is in fact becoming rare enough to warrant concern. I am talking about the simple…Continue

In his national best selling book “The Tipping Point” author Malcolm Gladwell discusses a few reasons that some products and ideas become huge success stories and others do not. Mr. Gladwell argues that at some point in time "an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire." Successful products or ideas that spread over a wide demographic do so not because of the direct actions of their creators but because they happened to catch the attention of…Continue
