Dan sent me 'A Tree in Your Pocket' by Jacqueline Memory Patterson. It has travelled in my pocket on many occassions.
I would like to share with you the 'conclusion' ..................
roads for woodland and supermarkets for gardens.
The memories of trees are ancient. They show what was and what can be, giving us ecologically sound advice. The wild places where they grow and prosper, however, are now severely at risk, open to desecration in the so-called name of progress, their unique properties ignored as man and machine determine to control and alter the precious balance of the land.
I would love to hear your opinion ............can we strike a balance between man and nature??
Must progress always come first?? Are you connected to the outside world and do you fully appreciate what it has to offer??
