  • Keeping Rain Where it Belongs

    Keeping Rain Where it Belongs Once upon a time, there was a small settlement on the banks of a beautiful river. It was a lovely site, with many trees, open meadows of wildflowers and grasses, and a marsh where water plants grew and many different kinds of insects, birds, butterflies, and small animals lived. When it rained, the water seeped into the ground where tree roots could reach it, and it replenished the marsh.

Sound bites about the impending doom and gloom about climate change are a constant reminder that we live in a precarious world. I peer out the window and ponder.
