There are as many ways of connecting with Nature as there are people.
One of my favorite, most meaningful ways is by keeping a Nature journal – a written record of some kind that captures your thoughts, observations and even drawings if you like, of all the natural world around you.
It is interesting to note that the words Journal and Journey share the same Middle English root word – “diurnal” meaning “daily”.
This can and should be a daily exercise that helps keep us grounded and rooted in not only our hearts to be in touch with what are thinking, feeling and experiencing, but in the world around us also.
Most all the great naturalists kept journals of some sort that helped them make sense of the natural world.
