Sometimes we just need to “quiet our cleverness” (as they say in Biomimicry) and BE for a while. Thanks for the reminder…

Nature does have calming and healing powers that can benefit everyone. Here we have lots of Mallards and Snowy Egretsas well as Kingfishers. All are great to see in flight. And in the mornings of ducks come all the way up to the patio fense when they are out collecting worms and pillbugs. So many people are too busy to notice nature and that maybe one of the things that acts to hinder environmental protection. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Every fall we are always awestruck by the 30-40 deer we see in the cut down corn fields along route 31 in Kane County, IL. It makes our drive home so enjoyable and takes away the stress of the work day.
