Couldn't let today's major anniversary pass unacknowledged:

Carolus Linnaeus (formerly Carl von Linné), born 300 years ago today.

We have a lot to thank Linnaeus for. After all, if there had been no Linnaeus, there would have been no Homo sapiens.

Happy birthday, C.L.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
