Camel-sparrows. Beetle-ness. Pondering daffodilty and barely imagined beings:
“We are so disconnected from the living world that we can live in the midst of a mass extinction, of the rapid invasion everywhere of new and noxious species, entirely unaware that anything is happening.
“Happily, changing all this turns out to be easy.
Just find an organism, any organism, small, large, gaudy, subtle — anywhere, and they are everywhere — and get a sense of it, its shape, color, size, feel, smell, sound… meditate, luxuriate in its beetle-ness, its daffodility.”
