to the quality of our lives,
I wonder, if we spent a little more time in nature?
Would paying attention to the life cycles of animals
or the annual changes of landscapes
give us an increased sense of respect for the environment?
How would eating seasonal local food
affect our patterns of consumption + our health + well-being?
Ordinary experiences of nature
can renew our sense of reverence
+ remind us of how deeply interconnected we all are.
