"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts." ~ Rachel Carson
What do you find beautiful in nature?
Here are some of my favorite natural things (not surprisingly, many have been popular post subjects through the years):
a quiet snowfall
the full moon
an apple orchard in May
tomatoes on the vine
deer in the woods
Just reading this list makes me feel easy inside ~ and I'd imagine a small journal devoted to such simple, earthly pleasures would be both a comfort and joy. A page devoted to each item ~ with notes, photos and/or sketches. This might be a fun and meaningful project to do with the children - a unique and quite personal nature notebook for the year.
Happy Thursday, my friends!
