Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote: "Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience." After the way this year began, most of us will be spending our summers outside while still trying to keep some distance between ourselves and other humans.
Foragers is a collection of items encouraging each of us to get up close and personal with nature. Learn more about the birds and the flowers in your area. Engage your creativity and make natural art using your own pressed flowers. Paint something on a rock and leave it as a treasure for someone else to find. Choose a book that will help you to better appreciate the world around you. Perhaps if we find ourselves grounded in nature this summer, we might come out of this stronger and better. In the words of Ranier Maria Rilke "If we surrendered to earth’s intelligence we could rise up rooted, like trees."
