The melding of children and nature is a powerful union; affording practical wisdom and advancing innate curiosity toward further discovery while instilling an appreciation for the preservation of one of the most fundamental sources of knowledge on earth – nature.
A perfectly natural response to the exhilaration of discovery is the desire to share what we’ve learned; how we feel. Whether whispered in awe of a sunset at dusk or echoed through a deep canyon pass, expressed in lyrical song or depicted in colorful chalk on a sidewalk, we all share.
In association with a lifelong fascination with books and the captivating stories within, writing is my expression of choice with which to share the extraordinary enrichment of reading – for leisure, for learning, for life.
