Our Apetite Has Consequence
So far away from anyplace, on a lonely beach that rarely sees man, the hunger of man for fish is evident.
A beautiful tangle of colors and textures, the net reminds me that even though I stand at the very edge of the world, the world is a smaller place than any of us can imagine.
I am guilty, I have filled my stomach on many occaisions with the white and flaky bounty of the sea.
I wish we could tread more lightly on the planet though.
A net like this costs thousands of dollars... I am sure the fisherman who owned it would also rather not see it on the beach on Umnak Island.
