KCT Thought of the Week, September 20, 2013

“Young, old, or in between, we can reap extraordinary benefits by connecting—or reconnecting—to nature.  For the jaded and weary among us, the outdoor world can expand our senses and reignite a sense of awe and wonder not felt since we were children; it can support better health, enhanced creativity, new careers and business opportunities, and act as a bonding agent for families and communities.  Nature can help us feel fully alive.”  Richard Louv in “The Nature Principle”
