Diana Beresford-Kroeger — but no column

There’s no column this week, because the Sunday Herald doesn’t publish on Easter Sunday — so I’ve had a week off. There are some big developments coming soon on this site, though, and I’ve been working diligently — just not on a column.

Meanwhile, we’ve published my interview with Diana Beresford-Kroeger, the amazing warrior-scientist from Ireland who now lives and works near Ottawa. She’s the author of a fascinating new book, The Global Forest, in which she talks about forests and the relationships between the living things within them at a level of sophistication that I found astonishing. And she does it in language worthy of an Irish bard, too. It’s a wonderful conversation; I enjoyed every moment of it.
