Encounters with Nature

My encounters with nature influence my behavior each day. The joy of spotting a hare sunning at the edge of a field inspires me to slow down and appreciate the moment. When there are kites soaring overhead, I instinctively desire creative activity. And the rare moment when a goldcrest appears before me, I turn nostalgic with the understanding of how fleeting special moments can be and promise myself I will connect with my loved ones soon.

This relationship with nature supports my personal growth, how I adapt to change and teaches me how to expand my knowledge by examining my own behavior and how to alter it to support a resilient, harmonious and purposeful life.

Each post connects my observations of nature to those of human behavior, compares the similarities and considers the lessons.

I hope you enjoy reading about these encounters, observations and musings. I’m counting on you to share your own with me!
