Day 146: Rachel Carson

Chilly. Raining. Sunny at times. Cold. A long walk with Angel.

Yesterday, I heard a radio station say that Rachel Carson lived for awhile in Clear Lake, California. An internet search today couldn't substantiate that. It seems to be untrue.

The Clear Lake reference is that she got the idea to write "Silent Spring" after receiving a letter from a resident of Clear Lake. In reading a bit about Rachel, I came across this quote by her:

“Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.”
