Hey Steven, ta very. Enjoy the next one.

Michael, thanks for the poem.
I am glad to have had some part in inspiring that lovely piece.
Barbara thanks for the pictures and for the significant contributions
you continue to make to enrich the discussions on this page.

Below is a thought that came to me last night as I reflected on the pictures and the poetry:

From within the remaining forests of the country
May the memories of the glimmer of the fireflies by night,
And the majestic glow of the flame of the forest by day,
Etched firmly in the inner recesses of our soul,
Ignite and set alight, the passion to write the preservation fight
Deep into the concrete jungles of the city!

Thanks Michael, a great poem.

I was wondering about this rainforest where I took this photo. Is it still standing?

They say the logs are still rolling out at Turubu. Such a sacrifice ... for what? They say there have been little gains by the people who have "sold" these logs which took hundreds of years to grow into massive trees.
