The old philosophical question, “if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” can perhaps be re-written as “if a woodlands is clearcut for a parking lot, will anyone notice”?

There was a shopping mall
Now it’s all covered in flowers

Once there were parking lots
Now it’s a peaceful oasis

    Those with an eye for beauty will
    notice. Those with their eyes open
    will remember.
