From the New York Times …Dead for 32,000 Years, an Arctic Plant Is Revived


An  article in the New York Times www.nytimes.com has left me feeling so amazed because the  little plant that is the subject of the article so dramatically demonstrates the strength, power and tenacity of pure life force.

Written by reporter Nicholas Wade, the article says ” Living plants have been generated from the fruit of a little arctic flower, the narrow-leafed campion, that died 32,000 years ago, a team of Russian scientists reports. The fruit was stored by an arctic ground squirrel in its burrow on the tundra of northeastern Siberia and lay permanently frozen until excavated by scientists a few years ago.”

Here is the link to the full article online

I am truly inspired to be more than I was before in reverence to the life force that I have been given  that is within me!
