8 or so bees in my bonnet
this years' galapagos conservation trust lecture and dinner was very
enjoyable again. this years guest speaker was the bbc's environment
correspondent, david shukman, excellent.
i asked a question about education.
at the dinner i sat next to charles darwin's great great grandson,
randal keynes, who talked very passionately about darwin's wife emma, a
devout christian, (randal is an atheist himself), but who also loved
and supported her husband whole heartedly, had a difficult balancing of
her faith and love...
'you ought to write a book', i said
'i did he said...
a little further into the conversation...
'you know, this would make such a great film...'
it's called 'creation''
on my other side sat lara from san diego,
who used to be in finance,
but was now working for the princes trust for architecture
helping build sustainable housing on the galapagos
whose population is booming because of the tourist trade...
cool evening. thanks again m&d!...
food for thought...
