Quotes 6/23/13

Of all the language sources, the loss of nature seems the saddest. A thousand times a day, nature - in the most ordinary of places - has something to tell or show us; something it wants us to touch, smell or feel; it wants all of us, not just the overtly artistic, to express.
Joyce McGreevy

I stand holding the apple in both hands. It feels precious, like a heavy treasure. I lift it up and smellit. It has such an odor of outdoors on it. I want to cry.
Margaret Atwood

A man who lives with nature is used to violence and is companionable with death. There is more violence in an English hedgerow than in the meanest streets of a great city.
P.D. James

Great quotes, lilo. I especially like the first one.
It truly a wonder how the nature "talks" if we listen.

Is that a pic of the Super Moon from last night? DH said he woke about 12 midnight and saw a huge, shiny moon from the window.

P.D. James is right in a way, but the violence there is a matter of the foodchain, not the deliberate cruelty of people.

I love the first quote and appreciate the fact that we, who live with gardens and the outdoors close by have not entirely lost the dialoge with nature.

Watched last night the moonrise. I had gone down the street where I could see without trees getting in my way. Looked like I should spot the Lunar lander somewhere.

It was last night's moon, coming up over the trees, shortly after it hid behind clouds
