"When I am big . . . "

The Artdog Quote of the Week

A person could (people have and do) write many books about the value of outdoor play, the things children learn from it, and the reasons why "nature deficit disorder" really is a serious matter. We can't save what we don't value, but there are so very many reasons why we should and must value our natural environment, and cherish the many lessons nature teaches.

  1. Years ago, when I hung out with a bunch of Dallas-area pagans, one of the guys said something to me along the lines of, "Well, that's easier for you because you live so close to nature." I guess he meant that I lived out in the country, but I asked him, "Where do you live, Space Man?" Because the truth is, nature is all around us, no matter where we live. Seasons change, birds migrate, flowers bloom, and water flows in its natural channels, even where there's a lot of pavement. You just have to know enough to look for it, and that takes spending time looking and learning.
