Monday (belated) thought of the week: give them time

A thought:

We need to give them time outdoors, where they can meet and savor the world that humans have not made – pill bugs on a sidewalk, a swarm of tadpoles in a puddle, a tree for climbing, a sky aflame with sunset, a kiss of wind.

Scott Russell Sanders, in “A Conservationist’s Manifesto” in Coming to Land in a Troubled World (Bloomington, IN: Indiana University Press), p. 214.
