I love the opening imagery from this article about seagrass:
"When Karen McGlathery used to swim in the coastal bays off Virginia’s Eastern Shore, the water would quickly turn cloudy and brown as sediment swirled around her. Now, 25 years later, for as far as she can swim the water remains clear. The sediment is anchored in place by lush green seagrass meadows, teeming with fish, scallops and crustaceans. 'It’s like this beautiful underwater prairie,' says McGlathery. 'It’s just gorgeous.'"
Stories like this make me feel hopeful.
