Doesn’t this photo illustrate what we need more of in the world? More nature, more compassion, more gentleness, more help. More children learning to be compassionate, gentle and helpful to nature.
As April comes to an end, I am hanging onto Earth Day. This month’s round-up is made up of things that have taught me, inspired me and helped me to think about the Earth and my place in it. I hope that some of them help you to do the same.
Pastoral Song by James Rebanks was a major focus of my last blog post, but I have to share it again and encourage you to read it for yourself.
May we raise children who love the unloved things
Books are one of the ways I’m trying to help Ellie understand the world. Here are a few about climate change, environmentalism and the Earth that we’ve liked: We Are Water Protectors, I Am The Storm, A Rock Is Lively (this whole series is a great way to introduce science to little kids).
Earth Day? Took my husband for an appointment, did an errand afterwards then went for a walk with a friend and sat at our picnic table outdoors and chatted. Enjoying the warmer weather.
Spending time outside is a great way to connect with friends. I’m hoping the warmer weather comes to stay soon!
Enjoying your posts, Julia, both about the farm, the land and your home renovations and building.
Thank you, Carolyn.
