I have just completed a 3 day cycle trip on the Hauraki rail trail in the North Island of New Zealand ( thus the sparsity of recent posts!). What a fabulous trip! I was cycling with 2 old friends from my high school days and another was our support crew in the car. We have had a hoot. There are more posts and pictures to come.
Yesterday, on our last day we saw these trees in the distance and I was instantly transported to the world of Dr Suess and the story of the Lorax and the Truffula trees. For those who have never read it, I highly recommend you source this children’s at a local library. It is not only a fun book for the kids to read but also has a strong underlying and very relevant message about responsible sustainability and the impact of commercial greed on the habitats of animals and the surrounding environment. I must try and find out if that was Dr Suess’s original intention?
Here is a 1972 animation of the Lorax which is on You Tube. More recently a movie was made starring Danny Devito.
