    I do this sometimes on a sunny day on my deck or when everyone else goes to bed and it is quiet.  
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Enjoy the Sunrise/Sunset
    Father Thomas Berry says, "...our primary purpose is celebration. Celebration of the dawn and the sunset and the different seasons of the year is a religious ritual, a way in which humans can establish their integral relationship with the universe, with the planet Earth." Respond to Berry's assertion.

    I waited for last night's sunset with anticipation of the pink moon and wasn’t disappointed 
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Spend Time Outside
    Rachel Carson said that we need the beauty and mysteries of the natural world for our spiritual and emotional development. Does that ring true for you? What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time indoors?

    I did some walks around the house outside and around our one acre of yard finding the daffodils more awesome this year.

    They are the ones responsible for keeping our plants, food, flowers, trees, in balance for animals, humans, and earth.
