    Travelling makes it difficult to complete all my challenges.  But I did get a great walk through the wonderful campus of Bradford Woods at Indiana University.
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Practice Gratitude for Earth
    Kathleen Dean Moore says that a sense of gratitude leads to a sense of moral obligation. Do you agree? How can we cultivate a sense of gratitude as individuals, and as a society?

    I reflect on my time in nature as  time to be grateful for the wonder of plants, animals, sun and sky.  The simple yet complex natural world keeps me in check with things greater than I am.

    Although my challenges don't include being outside in nature, I find my early morning walks have brought a new hope for spring.  The cardinals and robins are out and about!  Sitting inside and watching the downy and hairy woodpeckers is a positive sign of life!
