Materialism

These mountains are my home, these forests are my refuge, these rainforests are my sacred place. But climate change is taking this away from me. If my house burns down, I can rebuild it somewhere else. But I can’t rebuild this landscape the same as it was. Not while the weather continues its relentless march into new territory that’s hostile to humans and rainforests alike.

Ideas sheet for nature journaling

posted in: Nature journaling | 7

In the spirit of sharing something handwritten and messy, and to give you more ideas for your nature journaling adventures, here’s an ‘Ideas sheet’ I created a few months ago. It was only meant to be a ‘draft’ that I was going to work up into something ‘nice’. But I ran out of time, started giving it out at workshops, and people seem to like it. Maybe they find it helpful because it’s messy? I don’t know, but I’d love to hear your thoughts.
