Enjoying THIS moment and all things sharing it with me 📸 : @melaniepearl
After graduating I became enthralled with the history of the earth; organic and inorganic. The vastness of time, and the intricacies of what has been had me longing for a deeper understanding. I devoured books by the likes of Stephen J Gould, Rachel Carson, and Carl Sagan. Paleontology and geology became my obsession to the point where, during recreational climbing trips, I would spend more time admiring limestone outcrops and their fossils than I would actually climbing the routes I had come there for.
Yet emerging from this paleontological binge, it came to me that the life that now exists may be more worthy of my mental capacity. For today is a point unique to time, and today’s organisms are tomorrow’s fossils.
