Tribute to myneighbor, author and educator Bernd Heinrich. Bernd is sometimes called 'The American Thoreau." His partner, Lynn was a Bronze medalist in the 1980 Olympic Decathalon. Bernd is a wonderful writer. I highly recommend "The MInd of the Raven." Bernd is an ultramarathoner. Though he failed to win the "Spartathon" (160 miles) we give him the World Masochist Gold Medal for effort. This is place where Goliath the Raven lives. With my easel precariously perched on tussock in the middle of Alder Stream I balancde on two rocks to give you this impression of my paradise. #Maine #BerndHeinrich #ultramarthon #decathalon #Natureconservancy #ravencognition #bumblebeeeconomics *Mexican Immigrant Monarch Butterfly not included.
