Mini Art Journal Journey - Week Eighteen

5.08.2007


I've been a bit behind with Emily Falconbridge's Mini Art Journey Challenge, but I am now all caught up! You can see my previous two week's cards by clicking my Mini Album link on the left if you wish, otherwise this week's prompt from Emily was: Nature. I could have journaled an entire book on this one as it plays such a huge part in our lives here living in the Northwoods. Ethan and I love being outside, whether it's hiking the trails, spending time at one of the many lakes in the area, biking or just playing around in the yard with Zoey...we usually always end up doing something outside together as a family on the weekends. As a child growing up I spent tons of time outdoors playing and as a teenager there were many bonfires and camping trips taken, and just times spent outdoors reflecting on thoughts and or ideas, or just taking in the beauty of what was around me. I was lucky to have grown up along the widest point of the Mississippi River which was just a beautiful and magical place. I really want Zoey to feel the connection she has between herself, nature and the world, and the respect that should be given and is/can be mutual between humans, animals and the earth. This is something that is really important to me! So much peace can be found in nature. A great prompt and a wonderful thing to reflect on!

i love every word in this post, and i honestly think if more parents adopted this attitude, there would be less crime and violence in this world. Children spend way to much time in front of the TV!
love, love, love the card!
