In praise of Bernd Heinrich

I tuned into Maine Pubic Broadcasting’s Maine Calling show yesterday at 1 pm in order to listen to Bernd Henirich discuss his newest book (he’s published 20), The Naturalist’s Notebook: An Observation Guide and 5-Year Calendar-Journal for Tracking Changes in the Natural World Around You.

Listeners and/or readers should check out this 5 minute Vimeo that shows Bernd living in a tiny primitive camp, running and cimbing scary high trees in  Maine.  I have watched this brief video at least a dozen times over the past few years and continue to be ovewrhelmed with tears every time I revisit it.  It just happened again.

I’m headed outside to explore the woods.
