Diane Ackerman’s “The Round Walls of Home” [Dog-Eared Page, June 2016] was a wonderful reminder for the people of Earth. I’ve been trying to view daily life from a big-picture perspective, and Ackerman’s essay gave me a nudge in that direction. From that altitude the air is clear, revealing what’s important: caring for each other, forgiving foibles, and bringing the guardianship of our planetary home to the forefront.
