Monday Photos | 3 Quarks Daily

Alpine meadow in Franzensfeste, South Tyrol, in May of 2020.

Three weeks before the photo[…] above [was] taken, the meadow was filled with dandelions and was a completely different color. The transformation was sudden and quite stunning. –

Mountain meadows and all other ecological communities are interdependently alive and change and exchange dynamically with one another and with the weathers. These are not dead and static like manmade “lawns” that require manmade chemicals and vast amounts of water to appear alive, as a performance piece performing life without living it.  – word pond

This tree stump is kept alive by its neighbours

It’s sometimes easy to think that we know how most things work, especially those that surround us and we take for granted. Truth is, our knowledge is still advancing and constantly updating. There is so much we don’t know . . .

Biodiversity moves beyond counting species : Nature News & Comment

Common species such as this guineafowl pufferfish (Arothron meleagris) may have important functions in their ecosystems.

Ecologists are increasingly looking at how richness of traits — rather than number of species — helps set the health of ecosystems.

Writing At Wesleyan Presents Poet CAConrad on April 25, 2012

Poet CAConrad to Read at Russell House, Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT

CAConrad is one of the most important poets writing today. And, yes, I’ll say it — I love his work. I’m currently reading his latest  beauty, A Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon, in which he lays out each poem in all its interdependent facies with the (Soma)tic exercise from which it came.

CAConrad’s quotidian is (Soma)tic poetry, which he developed as a practice to re- locate, constitute, vamp, and unite his BODY with the BODY of wildness, of the interdependent world that still exists within Brancusi’s egg shadow, the world from which everything sprang, the one we proceeded to contain and suffocate with a grid-like, man-made overlay, a manufacturing template to ultimately control our fear of human mortality. And, as Galileo stated ,even as he was forced to recant, for the manufacturers, “And still it spins.” Reading CAConrad’s poems could change you.  I read the lessons, the poems and breathe them into the fluorescent air everywhere.

CAConrad edits Jupiter 88, an online journal of contemporary poetry video readings. At his blog, poet CAConrad, he has written of himself:  “The son of white trash asphyxiation, my childhood included selling cut flowers along the highway for my mother and helping her shoplift. I am the author of several books of poetry, and I am a recipient of a 2011 Pew Fellowship in the Arts for poetry.”

Please join him at Wesleyan University’s Russell House, 350 High Street, Middletown, Connecticut, at 8 pm, Wednesday, April 25, 2012.  ~DF

H. F. (Tom) Noyes on interdependence

Basho (and Blyth) considered interpenetration to be the ‘religious’ element in haiku  — the element of wholeness, rather than ‘holiness’ . . .  All of life at all times, if we could but see it, is interdependently arising, ever in flux and always meriting our attention.   – H.F. Noyes (1918 – 2010) ~ gratitude to Eric L Houck for sharing this quotation
