I'm watching a PBS special on American Parks. Landscape architects brought beauty into the cities. They built the Emerald Circle around Chicago. People flocked to the open wooded spaces from the city. Do the parks still exist? One wonders if anyone notices anymore. There's no excitement to go into wilderness anymore. Everyone is staring at their computers, as am I. We are losing touch with nature, with the earth, with the creatures that live there. I'm not sure there is a god, but he would be so sad to see humans turn their backs on his daily, grand creations. Sad.
