"They beckoned; leaves were alive; trees were alive. And the leaves being connected by millions of fibres with his own body, there on the seat, fanned it up and down; when the branch stretched he, too, made the statement. The sparrows fluttering, rising, and falling in jagged fountains were part of the pattern,"
- Mrs. Dalloway, Virginia Wolf

Happy World Environment Day Beirut.
Switch off your lights and recycle your Nestle bottles and hope for the best...
In the meantime...
