Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost

After we first looked at this house where we now reside, we went for a walk. We were wonderfully surprised to soon find ourselves in a park and by the river. What a great feature. Not long after we moved in, however, they started to dig and lay the infrastructure for a new subdivision. As you can see in the photo, it comes pretty darn near to the path. What a shame that they couldn't leave just a bit more room for nature and for us to enjoy it. It boggles the mind, but, then again, my mind is easily boggled.

All in the name of progress :(

I grew up next to a wonderful woods and marsh area. Now it's just another subdivision.

Some of my favorite places to play when I was young are now subdivisions with nearly wall to wall houses. It makes me sad.

The same thing is occuring in the prairie grassland close to our place. It makes me sad.. it truly does.

Unfortunately, it's happening everywhere. Development like this displaces animals from their habitats among many other negative effects.
