Un poème, une attention..

Bonsoir, Un inconnu a fait ma journée. Il a fait ma journée, car, j’aime ces petites attentions qui ne coûtent rien. Un regard bienveillant, un sourire, un mot gentil…

The Juice of Human Kindness

I am making guacamole for the play date I’m having with two other collage artists tomorrow. I am shocked when I see the time is 11:45 p.m. shortly after I’ve also discovered I’m out of limes.

Niche construction: does it represent a “vastly neglected phenomenon” in evolutionary thought?

“Niche construction” is a new term in evolutionary biology—indeed, a buzzword—although the idea has been around under other rubrics for years. It is the idea that the niche of an organism is not something static, imposed by its environment, but that the organism, as it evolves in behavior, morphology, and physiology, can change its environment […]
