A few interesting quotes,

“For a new generation, nature is more abstraction than reality. Increasingly, nature is something to watch, to consume, to wear—to ignore.”

“We can now assume that just as children need good nutrition and adequate sleep, they may very well need contact with nature.”

Hamd and Shukr – Praise and Thanks

Some thoughts as I walked the John Heinz Wildlife Refuge, located just outside Philadelphia, on sabr, hamd, and shukr. Taking a break from all the technology to relieve some stress by reflecting on God’s Signs. Enjoy the 20-minute sound walk as well as a short podcast. A short photo set of the sound walk.
