Where Tulips Grow
Penned by Nick
A friend sent this pic from the Netherlands, which like Bangladesh (though at the opposite end of the economic spectrum), sits well below sea level is poised to suffer first from the effects of rising oceans. At the risk of sounding sentimental, it struck me how tragic it will be lose these daily reminders of beauty. As much as environmental preservation has a moral imperative, there is also an aesthetic one that is often overlooked though ever present. How do we find inspiration without beauty around us? Yet another downward spiral we’re forced to wrestle our way out of when seeking to solve the problem of global warming.
