First day of work was hectic. So many procedures and new names to remember, and so little time to even just go out and enjoy the blue sky and the waterfront. Didn't see much wildlife in Downtown, unless you include pigeons, crows, seagulls, sparrows, etc.
While I was in the office, I came across Monday's Vancouver Sun and one of the main headlines was "Declining bird numbers could be swan song for ecosystem". And that article immediately triggered my mind of a book review by Mr. Griffith on the the book titled "Silence of the Songbirds" by Bridget Stutchbury.
Sometimes, I think the extinction of native species and invasion of exotic species will eventually "homogenize" the entire biodiversity of the planet, and in the end, the world will balance itself out with the "disasters" and wipe out most of the lives in the world.
Gosh, first day of work has already made me into a pessimist. Sigh.
