Taking Time to Savor Nature

     This short excerpt from Henry David Thoreau’s WALDEN is very apt for me and, I suspect, for many people.  Nature is all too often merely the background in which I live my busy life.  But taking the time to stop and enjoy the sound of a bird singing or the smell of a flower can be one of the real treats of my day.–April Moore 

     “There were times when I could not afford to sacrifice the bloom of the present moment to any work, whether of the head or hands.  I love a broad margin to my life.  Sometimes on a summer morning I sit in a sunny doorway from sunrise until noon.  I grow in these seasons, like corn in the night.”
