Celebrate the Environment

Every time I awaken to a new day, I'm overwhelmed with the Earth's generosity for allowing me to tread upon her soil, climb her mountains, hear the birds, and watch a river tumble over rocks. Every day is a miracle and unexpected wonder.

June is filled with environmental days, from World Oceans Day to World Sea Turtle Day and World Rainforest Day, with a lot of great ones in between. What a great opportunity, when the Earth is healing and we perhaps have a little extra time to spare, to appreciate and care for nature.

As parks, businesses, and more slowly open, and people are eager to leave home and explore, don't forget to take care with nature, from wildflowers to wildlife.

As a bonus, park benches, mountain tops, and cozy corners by a lake all make for great places to get some fresh air while reading a good book. Nurture the soul, body, and mind all at the same time.
