The Maldives, featured in a Wired gallery of islands shot from space. A place crucial to the story I told in Reef Madness: Charles Darwin, Alexander Agassiz, and the Meaning of Coral. It was in this unique archipelago that Alexander Agassiz found the evidence he felt proved beyond doubt that Darwin's theory of coral reef formation was wrong, dead wrong. It's also a singularly beautiful place, and particularly threatened by global warming.
I just read your orchid children Atlantic article. A professional colleague, a child psychiatrist actually, had forwarded it to me. You have managed to put truth and hope together in a most readable way. I'll share it with my psychotherapy clients, not to mention anyone in my family who's willing to deepen their understanding of themselves and their relatives!
I look forward to more of your excellent work!
