Surrounded By Beauty.

Hello Friends & Family,

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”

– John Muir

Look around.  We are surrounded by the wonders and beauty of nature.  The climate change discussion likes to draw our attention to the negative effects of our neglect but how about we open our eyes to what we have right now and how much we want to leave to our children and our children’s children.  There is a Native American proverb that says, “We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”  How true that is. 

From the tallest peaks to the vibrant moss finding a home on a branch.   It’s all right there.  We’re all too busy not being in the moment.  Checking out the latest alert on our phone. 

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

– Albert Einstein

There is so much to learn from nature. Complexity. Simplicity. Strength. Weakness. Patience. Cooperation. Balance. Beauty.

So, do me a favor. Go on a walk.  Or go on a hike.  Then just sit there.  Without your phone.  And, take it all in.  It’s all pretty amazing if you open your eyes. 

“Preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”

– Carl Sagan

Let us all do our best to take care of this wonderful planet we live on. One only have one. 

And I hope you enjoyed some of my pictures!
