I apologize for cross-posting, but I wanted to give the TILS guys an
I'm packed, I'm gone, it's been a wild ride, y'all can do it ...
I'm hoping that Jose Muniz will pick up the slack and get this thing
moving, with help from all of you. I'll help again; by May first I
should be useful once more.
It looks as if Bob Parcelles has the legal part worked out. Time for
everybody to hop on board and get going. Make sure you have your orders
first; this is not a time for imaginative helpfulness. We have a plan
and we follow orders. Nobody messes with Miami Blues without approval
from the Science Gang, for instance. That would be John Calhoun.
Jan Everett has great plans for butterfly garden contests, a hearty
development of the school butterfly garden program. That's wonderful
and, if they pick it up in Miami/Dade, that will take care of our little
blues. (That's if they follow out the plan as envisioned, of course, God
willing and the crick don't rise.)
Thank you all for your patience, for dropping whatever you were doing
because I had an idea, for explaining to me things that any
five-year-old taxonomist would know.
Now ... the big push is for Earth Day.
We have a design that makes a great banner, as well as a tote bag or
t-shirt. Go get it (send Miriam a dollar) and get one made, and wear it
for Earth Day, or make your own Butterflies for Peace banner, but spread
the word ... the butterflies carry a promise of peace and renewal in a
world tired of war.
They also, many of them, bear messages from one group of scientists to
another. So we'll all be out looking, the scientists and the poets, and
as we make our world into a nicer place to be a butterfly in, I believe
we'll find we like it better, too.
That's our page.
Meanwhile, I hope everybody who can is planting a garden for wildlife,
and if it includes the Miami Blue's host plants, bless your heart.
