I Saw a Chinese Alligator Stretch Today


Went to the zoo today with my hubby for a bit of aerobic walking up and down the steps and hills there. We have a beautiful zoo, and home of the last passenger pigeon until her death and, with that death, the extinction of the species. This is written on the cottage that housed her and now serves as a memorial:
"The beauty and genius
of a work of art may be reconceived,
though its first material expression be destroyed;
a vanished harmony may yet again
inspire the composer;
but when the last individual
of a race of living things breathes no more,
another heaven and another earth must pass
before such a one can be again."
-William Beebe
and now hosting Blooms and Tunes with a few of my favorite individuals, The Faux Frenchmen
