I live on an island in the Salish Sea close to the Canadian border. I love human beings but am horrified by the way we are treating our environment. Society is in crisis I hope we can give up on greed and avaricious and create a more sustainable and equitable culture..

Miradouro da Rocha Conde de Óbidos

From Pessoa's Lisbon:

Right in front of the wharf he has just left is the Rocha do Conde de Óbido, an eminence crowned with a well kept garden which is reached by two large stone stairways; from the garden itself, at the top, there is a fine view over the river.
