If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning, torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day... EB White

Insects on the trail
On an evening walk yesterday I watched for insects on the path. I noticed a couple of different kinds of caterpillars and a grasshopper. It is amazing how many insects are around us if we take time to notice.
Looking up information on insects I discovered at any given time it is estimated that there are some 10 quintillion (10,000,000,000,000,000,000) individual insects alive. Wow, that's a lot of bugs!
