As many of you know, I grew up in a farming community in East Texas, where there were more cows than people. We had chickens and goats, and I spent a summer learning how to train horses. Each year, we grew a large vegetable garden and had several fruit trees in the yard: pear, peach, cherry and pomegranate. When I was young, I was fascinated by insects and snakes and climbed trees like the Von Trapps! I loved reading the U.S. Fish and Wildlife newsletter and tried to learned the names of as many birds, trees, and wildflowers as I could find.
This complexity is what makes Dance Exchange's From the Desk of Rachel Carson such an important, powerful and worthwhile work. It’s a story that must be told. We have a responsibility to do as much as we can to repair the damage done to environment, so that those who live after us will be able to enjoy the splendor and wonder of the world.
