celebrate the NATURALIST


if it wasn’t for open minds,
the chase for knowledge,
and explorations on ships,
i surely would not be communing with you today via virtual log.

200 years ago, a role model for all of us was born.
charles darwin was born with a hunch in the gut-
that life was more than the upper class english culture he was raised in.
at the age of twenty he boarded a ship called BEAGLE,
and sailed around the world for 5 years,
collecting fossils, writing and engaging fully with the natural world.
changed man, changed world.
a life committed to understanding the natural world,
and how man has evolved within it,
sounds like a mission to me.
the darwin naturalist mission,
inspires me to wonder, what an active explorer should be doing now.
we have sailed the sea and gone to space,
scientific studies are often now in laboratories in our minds,
not aboard ships exploring desert islands…
we have an obligation to explore unchartered territories,
but so many adventurers have come before us…..
the pressure is on- so wether you explore in song or thought,
by foot or by air….
find your ship, a partner or two, and eat it up x
i am aiming to do the same….. eyes open everyday.
some titles to ponder in honor of a man who sailed for us:
Descent of Man to Emotions
The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex
The Formation of Vegetable Mould through the Action of Worms.
