Welcome to Biophiles Online!

It was back in January 2017 that I first began dreaming about Biophiles Online. The idea first dawned on me while I was cold, working inside a plastic covered hoop-house, at a commercial nursery, cleaning old leaves and other plant debris from the crotches of no less than eight-hundred  three-gallon azalea plants. It was both a lot better and a lot worse than that sounds.

being or doing?

It gave me a lot of time to truly zen and take care of the plants. In turn, my thoughts turned deep and I really considered what it is I care about and how it is that I care. To care belongs in the realm of being vs doing. I realized that I care about making positive and meaningful contributions to this incredible and fascinating world. I also care about connecting with others and sharing ideas about how to overcome that being vs doing duality.

From the vantage point of a little black dog with pointy ears we see a figure far away, down a cliff, and at the center of the picture in the middle of the lushest, greenest, mountain canopy imaginable. The blue mountains arise in the distance.

So here we are.
