Monday thought of the week: fun, easy, nearby, and every day

A thought:

The societal trend coined by Richard Louv as “nature-deficit disorder” is real and not yet reversed. Shared worries about the consequences of this disconnect among people of all ages around the world are actually, in my view, a hopeful sign. We are glad that so many parents today worry about their children’s lack of time outdoors playing freely in nature. Now we need to translate that worry into easily accessible opportunities for that connection. A real connection. One that is fun, easy, nearby, and every day.
