I have been reluctant to do this. For a while now, it's been my position that the blogging bandwagon seems awfully crowded, and I already have too many things happening in my life. Recently, however, several friends have begun blogging. I've been reading and commenting on their blogs, and I find myself being inexorably sucked into the vortex. And now it's just after hours on a somewhat drizzly Friday afternoon and here I am composing my first posting. I don't know how this will go, nor how often I will be posting, but it's time to dive in.
So why Gossamer Tapestry? I'm a conservation biologist and I do a lot of ecological restoration work. I expect to be talking about that a fair bit here. My specialty is restoration of endangered butterfly species. I have used the expression Gossamer Tapestry in some previous writings
to express the richness of the world of butterflies, and it seemed appropriate as a blog title.
So welcome. Scoot your mouse on over and take a peek. Let's see where it goes from here.
