The Gift of Nature

“ Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” Albert Einstein

The choices each individual makes every day contribute to the health or the sickness of our earth. One of the most important things we can do for ourselves and for our children is to bring nature into our daily routines. hosts Joven Hundal and Jack Pawlakos read the Gift of Nature by Cynthia Brian from Be the Star You Are! Millennials to Boomers Celebrating the Gifts of Positive Voices in a Changing Digital World. They then interview Day Schildkret, founder of Morning Altars to discuss the connection of nature with art. Day has built nature-based art installations at festivals and venues globally. He works weekly with teens and believes they are the most important generation and the most burdened. Kenneth Jeon looks at nature through the lens of a camera with informative tips on how to capture the emotion inside the photo. Nature is the way into the new world.

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
