Explore the artistic, scientific, and reflective pursuit of keeping a nature journal. Nothing can connect you closer with your own true nature than recording and reflecting on the miraculous world around you. Observing closely the texture of clouds, the petals of a flower, the vibrant life force of the green world reveals to you insights you might never discover in the rush of daily life… Sit on a rock, sketch a tree, write a poem, smell the damp freshness of earth with all of your senses peaked. |

What I have not drawn, I have never really seen. ~Frederick Franck
