Franklin Carmichael

<note to self>

my street from tvoit’s a paradox: i’m torn between my actions not meaning anything in the grand scheme of things and my actions meaning everything. pictured is a guy from the documentary my street with terminal cancer. is he concerned with the grand scheme of things? would i be? his screen-time in the documentary, though real, is very brief. however, explored in more depth, but acted, are the concerns of the lead character in this life who finds out she has terminal cancer. she has her own worries. universeand i have mine. and you have yours. and other lives have theirs, such as freezing, starvation, and death. still, even facing death, captured reporter mellissa fung was enraptured by the stars. may i always be torn by paradox, for my actions meaning nothing and my actions meaning everything.

Macrothylacia rubi (xndr)The Queen Of Green writes, ‘Turn over a new leaf this fall–don’t rake ’em!… Those brown, dead leaves are the planet’s butterfly nursery and home to microbes and worms. Animals like toads, shrews, and salamanders also hide and hunt in leaf litter.’

Gerald_Durrell from wpGerald Durrell [1925-1995] ‘was an early adopter of the “ark” philosophy’ (Stolen World, 230). ‘His idea relies on the following bases:

  • The primary purpose of a zoo should be to act as a reserve of critically endangered species which need captive breeding in order to survive.
  • They can serve the secondary purposes of educating people about wildlife and natural history, and of educating biologists about the animal’s habits.
  • Zoos should not be run for the purposes of entertainment only, and non-threatened species should be re-introduced into their natural habitats.
  • An animal should be present in the zoo only as a last resort, when all efforts to save it in the wild have failed.’
