WORDS

A quote for Monday. . .
"By suggestion and example
I believe children can be helped to hear the many voices about them.  Take Time to listen and talk about the voices of the earth and what they mean—the majestic voice of thunder, the winds, the sound of surf or flowing streams."  
~Rachel Carson

happy day!

Dear Marcia,

Can you tell me more about this...about what you say about the voices and what they mean? love, Beth

They can hear nature, but only if they take out the ear plugs and shut off the i-pod. Too bad so many of today's children would rather hear the screams of the latest "music" instead the beautiful melody of the birds around them.

This is so true.

Like listening to Mother Earth and the wise old fatherly voice of winter.

If only we take time to listen.
