SuperForester Carla Presents: Keep Us Where The Light Is

Hi Jackson and Fellow SuperForesters!

It’s so nice to be able to share some thoughts with you all. Being my first post, I wanted to make this one about something extra-special. Something that would inspire and uplift. Something that would make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. So I decided when it came to warm and fuzzy, it’s pretty hard for anything to beat the sun. So here it is, my first post of hopefully many more.

The Sun, a star so spectacular that it provides our planet with 126 billion horsepower of energy everyday. If the sun were hollow, you could fit approximately 1 million earths inside of it.

If the Sun were any different to how it is now, life on Earth would not exist. It is the perfect size, perfect age, perfect distance, perfect temperature and perfect brightness for life to exist on a planet like Earth. Apart from those mind blowing facts, the sun also provides us with glorious images. It is often that I wish I can hold on to it just a bit longer before it sets. Kinda like these guys.

Nothing is ever too big for us to grasp. Let your inner light shine forth.

Hi Carla,

I enjoyed your post, especially the part about everything in this present time (~2 million till now) being perfect for the sustainability of life on earth.

I was watching a program on how the earth was made on the history channel the other day and this "warm" period (in which we live) is a relatively calm and short period in the history of the earth. So we are fortunate to be here enjoying it now with the knowledge of what came before and most importantly with the knowledge of what's to come.

Makes me appreciate my time more!

awesome post, looking forward to more.

take care,

It's wonderful, I love that kind of pictures.
I've just discovered your blog tonight and I'm on it for 1 hour! You make a very good job, it's a pleasure to read you (I'm just sad because I don't speak English as well as French, my language!)

See you very soon;)
