In many ways our world is a very large place, but at the same time in other ways it is small and becoming smaller.

It’s large in its variety of species and diversity of habitat from deserts to glaciers, rainforests to savannahs, and butterflies to whales. There is more to experience than one lifetime could ever accomplish. But the world is small. Within one day’s time we can travel to most anyplace on the planet sharing time and place with local people, wildlife, and habitat.

We can sit quietly in awe with other magnificent species observing sights, sounds, and behavior as they go about their daily activities, and by utilizing the power of the world wide web we can share our experience with others around the world in an instant! The possibilities are endless allowing us to explore more of the planet and share those experiences with more people than ever before. I enjoyed being there. I hope you enjoy being here.
