Enya – Orinoco Flow (video)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTrk4X9ACtw
Let me sail, let me sail, let the Orinoco flow
Let me reach, let me beach on the shores of Tripoli
Let me sail, let me sail, let me crash upon your shore
Let me reach, let me beach far beyond the Yellow Sea

From Bissau to Palau in the shade of Avalon
From Fiji to Tiree and the isles of Ebony
From Peru to Cebu, feel the power of Babylon
From Bali to Cali, far beneath the Coral Sea

From the North to the South, Ebudau unto Khartoum
From the deep sea of clouds to the island of the Moon
Carry me on the waves to the land I’ve never been
Carry me on the waves to the land I’ve never seen

We can steer, we can near with Rob Dickins at the wheel
We can sigh, say goodbye, Ross and his dependencies

VITAS – Белоруссия / Belorussia
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R84fZZTGFsQ
music: Aleksandra Nikolayevna Pakhmutova http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandra_Pakhmutova
verse: Nikolai Nikolaevich Dobronravov (Alesandra’s husband, prominent Poet)
A white stork is flying
Above the whitish woodlands
A Byelorussian tune is heard
In the song of heather and brittle willows
This land accepted it all
Care, and caress, and flame
The sky was blazing above the earth
Like a crimson banner

Byelorussia, my youthfulness!
A partisans’ song… Pine-trees and fog…
A partisans’ song… Scarlet daybreak…
Byelorussia, my youthfulness!

Our memory follows
The forest path of the partisans
These paths are not forgotten
In the people’s fate
Every heart still aches
From the pain of those bygone years
The little children of Hotyn
Cry in every our family

Byelorussia, my youthfulness!
A partisans’ song… Pine-trees and fog…
A partisans’ song… Scarlet daybreak…
Byelorussia, my youthfulness!

A white stork is flying
Above the woodlands and quiet stubble-fields
Somewhere in the swamps
A cooling thunder is buried
The white stork keeps on flying
Above our native fields
Overshadowing the land of our love
With its big wings

Byelorussia, my youthfulness!
A partisans’ song… Pine-trees and fog…
A partisans’ song… Scarlet daybreak…
Byelorussia, my youthfulness!
Byelorussia, my youthfulness!
A partisans’ song… Pine-trees and fog…
A partisans’ song… Scarlet daybreak…
Byelorussia, my youthfulness!

21. “It’s possible to rehabilitate large-scale damaged ecosystems.”

Bad agriculture or animal overgrazing destroy the ecosystem and land, there is no winner in the end. Destroy your environment, you are on a self destructive slipping slope. Why did we do it? Because we were ignorant, we didn’t know, we didn’t make the connection. Science is totally relevant here, no that is an understatement, pivotal it is. This man, one man on a mission, has made so much impact, changed so many places to the better. It touches me deeply and amazes me. Check out the documentary. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBLZmwlPa8A and here is the website http://www.whatifwechange.org/magazine/

We have an example right at home here at Ontario in a much smaller scale – top soil erosion via bad agriculture practice. Cheltenham Badlands https://plus.google.com/105442778529509223049/about?gl=ca&hl=en. I was there out of frivolous curiosity two years ago.
