You may be wondering where exactly the Falkland and S Georgia Islands are. Here’s a link (using Google maps) to the Falkland Islands. Here’s a link to S Georgia Island. Whoa! That should give you some perspective.

That photo you see above is one from Sandra Critelli’s Falkland Island work.

We city dwellers forget how beautiful and fragile the wild can be. Looking at these photos, one steps away from the norm and into a world of pure, frigid abundance. There are birds, penguins, sprays of foamy surf, seagulls and so many citizens your head will spin. This ecosystem is good to keep in mind as we spread out from the city. Good to remember as our population grows. It’s also just plain interesting to see all the wildlife from Sandra Critelli’s creative camera lens.

Michael loves sharing what he's learned about organic lifestyles like living off the grid and bicycle commuting. He calls it "lifestyle entrepreneurship". He's into organic gardening, mindful living, and realizes that we only have this life and each other. His favorite quote is "The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both." (James A. Michener)
