Green CarnivalsI'm enjoying the environment itself this week, instead of writing about it; spending my spring break playing tour guide and sharing the wonders of the Land of Enchantment with my sister and niece from D.C. So, we've been hiking in the foothills, visiting Pueblos, wandering thru native plant nurseries, and today we're off to bird and hike north of Santa Fe. But before the week is over I wanted to catch up on posting the Carnivals of the Green. I spaced last week's, which was Number 119, posted at Natural Collection, and this week's, Number 120, is up at Victoria Everman.
What with watching the miracle of nature coming alive in the desert spring, making tamales, and planning our excursions, I haven't had time to read either of these Carnivals, but I'm quite sure they are the usual collections of good stuff. Bill McKibben's talk at UNM last night was both an unsettling glimpse into the reality of our climate situation and an infusion of hope from his amazingly positive attitude. I'll be posting about the event and about his current project on the weekend.
