You can feel the cool, misty breeze wafting frothily beneath the waterfall. It enlivens. The moss covered rocks are cerebrally slippery, blue chutes deeper

                        and swifter than you imagined, with trout jumping for blue winged olives ... Catch the resplendent rainbows amidst gurgling stickles, cascades, sibilating,

                        titillating, bubbling, whispering eddies, swirling pools, while the flotsam jettisons past, ... and a classy wicker picnic basket full of corrective memories.

by Renaissance artist Carroll F. Burgoon, III, a contemporary, morale-boosting peacemaker - from a family of prominent doctors.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Carroll had a "cup of coffee" at Philly's Academy of Natural Sciences.

​​"As I departed the freshwater environmental research and consulting arm of the Academy of Natural Science in Philadelphia,

I was determined to cultivate effectiveness helping people reset their hearts to be at their best and take care of yourself.

It became obvious the key to being happy in life is to first establish who you are, then, clarify and communicate your mission.

 My budding career in freshwater science began when I was a I was five-years-old Junior Curator at ANSP (Now, Drexel U.).

Two of my buddies left for MIT: One in math and my Little League team catcher in physics (I was a fielder, then pitcher).

They were both exceptional 10-year-old superstars. I wanted to be a brilliant mathematical genius like them, but I was not.

   I was already a passionate man. SoI remember those who sacrificed so much for you and me and comfort their families."

"I learned about pain

the way an intrepid

storm wall learns

about hurricane ---

as a time trial cyclist

I learned to manage

personal time, space, and independence.

I'm probably like a sinewy old bird

that's led a long life

and isn't tasty!"

​​The Early Years

1955 to 1988

​​​"An EXTRAordinary watercolor is like

virtuoso Antonio Vivaldi's symphonies.

I jettisoned my Save the Whales t-shirt

for handmade three-piece suits, dressy

white long sleeve shirts, and Italian silk

ties to begin field sales. I donated all my

costumes to be a fine artist -  Thus, you 

understand that the mayfly imago on

a green forest leaf underside must be ...

accurate, aesthetical, and as luxurious

as Clive Christian’s Imperial Majesty."

"I once lived as if I was utterly alone on an island only occupied by my voice of busyness.

Painting and writing were my 'therapy' to overcome the excruciating pain of loss.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​  His UNTOLD Secrets -

 "I had to solve the puzzle!"

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​       Carroll received a Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society, fellowship under the watchful eyes of Dr. Myron Anderson,

     biology professor, Gustavus Adolphus; There, he consulted an entomologist (and fly fisherman), who co-authored the first EPA

     Regs. with Dr. Ruth Patrick and Nixon. He joined the duo's team at​  Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia (ANSP) as

     an environmental consultant and principal investigator on Environmental Impact Statements for  BP, P&G, WSSC, and Potomac

     Electric. He was given full, free creative reign and a staff of four by Section Leader, Harvard Crimson's Samuel L.H. Fuller, PhD.,

     a malacologist in the Limnology and Ecology Division. Sam asked him what he'd do, then hired him on the spot in a hole-in-the-

     wall restaurant's backyard under a string of lights, professorial brew in hand; they shared the corner office.

​When you climbed the dustless wooden steps to his modest country boy's top floor bedroom you

encountered a nattily-mitered Navy bunk you could bounce a quarter on, Riker mounts, cigar boxes full

of pinned insects, a box of plate blocks, including Duck Hunting stamps, his parent's recent Scientific

American magazines, several Peterson's Field Guides, ... He grew up in a charming 1751 King George

Period manor with six wood-burning fireplacesHe was on a National Science Foundation grant that

studied the aquatic insects of ​Nicollett and LeSeur Counties and Minnesota's Boundary Wilderness:

"Sometimes the only language I can speak uses symbols - thus, I make pictures
with my paintbrushes, pro camera, and my fountain pen to understand this world!​
   Once, I painted my bedroom savannah yellow - My parent's did not like it at all.
  I loved playing on my bikes, not horses, not a tennis court. They never said a word!
I moved to DFW following our kin who sailed into Texas on a prairie schooner.
​   I never quit as a freshwater scientist. I simply became a watercolor artist in Texas.
Then, I was summarily disinherited. I am happy!"​

        He has hiked, backpacked, run trails, and canoed from Yosemite and Muir Woods, to the Anaconda Pintlar Wilderness Area,

     Boundary WatersGrand Canyon, Tallulah Gorge, Okefenokee, and​  Acadia, rafted the Yough, loved Falling Waters, lettered in

     tennis, Kung Fu (His sensei's dad was 442nd Infantry), was a Certified SCUBA diver who did a night dive off Long Island, and

     a Grumann Widgeon landing on a lake in the Poconos --- They flew out of a cornfield near home and landed on the private lake

     in front of the pilot's 110-room summer home and pulled ashore at the guest "log cabin"; Carroll was honorary co-pilot ... Carroll

     tackled the Broad River during a stage five flood, in pelting, stinging sleet in an open canoe and rafted the Yough's cauldron, ...

     "I thought I ran fast until I watched the St. Joseph's and Villanova runners disappear down the road. I clocked some speed past

     the Mud Hen campus including blistering 2 miles at 4:28 along White Clay Creek - I was better on the velodrome with my bicycle." 

​        Carroll was "bitten by the camera bug" more than 60 years agoSince, he's photographed several cover images, stories, and

     movers and shakers for a major business journal and NTXE- Newsplus, speedy athletes, corporate and private clients.

       Travel: E.g., Brazil, Germany, Portugal, Spain; ... MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MT, ... Carroll has not been to 6 other states.
