We are Jennifer, Gaurav and Akash. Welcome to our nature diary.
We live in our little nook of suburban Boston, in a town called Sharon. We are lucky enough to have a little patch of woods behind our back lawn, a lake a few houses down, and some parks a few miles away.
As we destroy our wild heritage, what surrounds us is changing. Our view outside was once a window that explored a limitless and uncanny dimension; today, it’s a mirror that reflects our own face back at us, in carefully tended grass lawns, paved streets, concrete buildings. We have such a short time on this earth: to pass this span in a house with no windows would be a great tragedy.
This diary is a report of what we can see by pressing a face to the glass. Even in the suburbs, there lives a wildness. The house we live in, the lawn that we tend, the woods that survive, are still a universe for some population. Let’s appreciate what we find.
