Monday thought of the week: lasting pleasures

A thought:

The lasting pleasures of contact with the natural world are not reserved for scientists but are available to anyone who will place him[/her]self under the influence of earth, sea and sky and their amazing life.

– Rachel Carson, The Sense of Wonder (New York: Harper & Row, 1965), p. 95. Originally written as a 1950′s magazine article called “Help Your Child to Wonder” and photo-illustrated after her death, The Sense of Wonder details Carson’s philosophy that adults need to nurture a child’s inborn sense of wonder about the natural world.
