Connecting With Nature

I had a wonderful visit with one of my oldest friends and my parents. It was so wonderful that I rarely looked at my phone and only took three pictures!

My friend lives in a rural area and, one day, we looked out to see the flock of turkeys that had been regular visitors to their yard. I had fun making a bit of video as well.

My parents live in a retirement community in Cornwall, Pennsylvania. I get out for a walk every day. This time, I explored the meadow walk that leads to the main campus via Wildflower Lane. I chatted with the bunny as I headed towards the creek.

I also sought out my favorite, “secret” garden, between two buildings on the main campus.

I have written about Wendell Berry’s poem, “The Peace of Wild Things”, before, and these pictures remind me that nature is all around us if we are willing to seek it out.
