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. Reply 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. Reply Amen, Miss Gaia! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
