Dear friends;

I have been invited to blog for National Geographic on freshwater issues
and am very excited to begin to get eco art ideas out in this venue. The
first essay is introduced by Sandra Postel, author of many international
books on water and a Fellow at National Geographic.

This blog was recently posted on Water Currents, and the second one about
the North Fork of the Virgin River, which flows through Zion National Park
will come out sometime soon. If you have the time please go to the site and
write a comment, as this is one way they know that people are reading the
blogs. This will also make it possible for an artistic voice to continue
being heard amongst the policy makers and scientists.

I so appreciate your help with this and wish you all a great new year.
