Hope you're enjoying your time in the water :) That jellyfish is what dreams are made for...


That jelly fish gives me butterflies in my stomach it is so lovely.

I think you'll love that book--very different in tone than Silent Spring, but still her special blend of poetry and science. BTW, if you haven't heard of it already, Linda Lear has a great, detailed biography of Rachel Carson called Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature (her bio of Beatrix Potter is also wonderful--Beatrix Potter:A Life in Nature).

Hey if you ever find that documentary, please oh please let us know! I've been looking for it for a couple of years but not very hard. Everything I read about it makes it sound like a landmark. Wasn't it a tv documentary?

In any case, I think Carson would love your crochet covered stone jellyfish!

OMG I just did a casual search on Amazon and found the Sea Around Us on VHS. It's even listed on Netflix, but not yet available. That gives me hope that soon it will be available in dvd form. Thanks so much for reminding me of it!


that jellyfish is divine
and is taking me on an imaginary ride under the sea
(thanks for the daydream, my friend)


One day we'll have to explore the Rachel Carson Salt Pond Preserve.


What a beautiful post. That's one of my all-time favorite books. =)


J'adore cette méduse!!! Quelle belle idée pleine de poésie...
