all that is wild and natural


My top ten favorite concepts from a much-loved new book on the shelf titled “This Book Was a Tree” by Marcie Chambers Cuff…

{1}  Disconnect with screens

{2}  Get dirty

{3}  Develop a compassion for nature

{4}  Explore more

{5}  Be aware of the wide world around you

{6}  Think of life as an experiment

{7}  Know your food and connect with it

{8}  Relearn the essentials of living

{9}  Strengthen the community around you

{10}  Befriend the bees

I could go on.  Marcie does a spot-on job of luring us (and our kids!) into loving the natural world.  The unpredictable, extravagant, raw, beautiful, wild natural world.  I love every little bit of it.  A much-recommended read and what perfect timing, here at Spring’s front door.

Here are a few shots of the natural world here on our little hobby farm that is fast waking up from winter.


Go be wild.  Wild is good.
