I had never heard of Rachel Carson until I was at the NCRA convention. The interactive read aloud seminar contained excerpts of a book about Rachel Carson.
I am not surprised that I’ve never heard of heard of her. As an American woman I know I am woefully ignorant of women in history.
From PBS Bill Moyers Journal. A conversation with Rachel Carson part 1.
I love the title “A Sense of Wonder”. Working with young children and seeing their sense of wonder in discovering things that are now mundane to me is what keeps me coming back to helping kids. That last moment where those neurons connect for the very first time electrifies me.
Sites I like:
Silent Spring Institute
You can take the self-compassion quiz/ scale yourself. My scores were uh, revealing to say the least. I’ll share mine later if there are others willing to share as well.

I wish Netflix had the option of closed captions. Listening through an accent can be difficult for me. I will have to watch this movie again.
Be prepared to take a discontinuous leap.There is a revolution going on in science. A genuine paradigm shift. While mainstream science remains materialist, a substantial number of scientists are supporting and developing a paradigm based on the primacy of consciousness.
Dr. Amit Goswami, Ph.D, a pioneer of this revolutionary new perspective within science shares with us his vision of the unlimited potential of consciousness as the ground of all being, and how this revelation can actually help us to live better.
The Quantum Activist tells the story of a man who challenges us to rethink our very notions of existence and reality, with a force and scope not felt since Einstein.
