last bushwalk of term

"Passion does not arrive on videotape or on a CD; passion is personal."
"Passion is lifted from the earth itself by the muddy hands of the young,"
"it travels along grass-stained sleeves to the heart."
"If we are going to save environmentalism and the environment, we must also save an endangered indicator species:   the child in nature."

— Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder, 2005

  2. Fantastic quote, and gorgeous pictures. I love your blog. It always makes me feel better after seeing my cherubs covered in 'mud pie dip'

  3. Thanks guys - Richard Louv's words always strike a chord with me and help me to remember just how important and valuable something as simple as a walk through the bush can be to our kids.

  4. Have you been having fun with photoshop Jenny? I think your whimsical touch in the photos really enhanced the words. Nice work.
