Putting Things Into Perspective

By

Sometimes we need to sit back and remember that we are caretakers of a very fragile planet.

From Southwestern England comes a reminder that we are not the only inhabitants of this earth. If you put things on the scale of the scope of the planet's history, they begin to fall into perspective. We all need perspective. We all need to remember that we are not the only life forms.

From CNN.com 50,000-year-old mammoth found in gravel pit.

If you have never read the story, perhaps you should find a copy of Ray Bradbury's, There Will Come Soft Rains. It is an interesting reminder of our fragility on a quite different level. This one will especially appeal to you Techies out there!

By the way, some of our feathered co-habitants are in danger. Can you help? Help a Whooping Crane.
