Contemplating spring and a “biophilic” city


Even as I gazed on the ice-covered pond at Van Horn Park this morning — at the sinking traffic cones and plywood the Springfield Fire Department left there (adding to the poison-leaching garbage already threatening aquatic life) — I believe things can get better.

Here’s an interesting piece from Grist:

Happy spring!
