She Wrote Other Books, Too.

Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.

  1. Simply beautiful.

    • Thanks, Carole. Wish I’d written it. It came from an essay by Rachel Carson called “The Sense of Wonder” which she originally published in a women’s magazine. She wanted to expand it into a book, but then she got all wrapped up in “Silent Spring” and died before she could return to finish it. Seek out the whole essay….it’s really moving.

  2. So true, and a wonderful reminder that one of the best gifts we can give our children is time in nature, so that they, too, can feel its importance in our lives.

    Rachel Carson gave us several important wake up calls.
