Different worlds, different mysteries

My tech-savvy daughter taught me how to do something called “hypertexting” where you link to something else on the Internet from your blog and the reader can go there with a mouse click. I used it in yesterday’s post.

I continue to be amazed at the World Wide Web and what it can do, but I’m just as amazed at nature’s goings-on at Deerfield: Three-footed coons, mesmerizing butterflies, magical ferns that grow 30 feet up in walnut trees, giant volunteer sunflowers that pop up in the middle of a briar thicket and blue skinks that re-generate their tails.

There’s a mysterious World Wide Web in cyberspace, but also one right under your feet if you look closely.
