Monday thought of the week: many different things at once

A thought:

Nature does not have to compete with technology for the attention of today’s kids. Nature only needs the opportunity to capture the imagination of youth. And if your kids return home dirty, wet and with a few scrapes and bruises they have collected along the trails, well, this is life. Time spent in nature is beautiful and dirty, boisterous and quiet, colourful and plain. It is always many different things at once, and it is always real. And in a world that is immersed in and worships the virtual, this is something for which we can all be grateful.
