The environment to me is what is in these pictures, breathtaking moments that you will live with forever. The environment is such a beautiful and mesmerizing place, I love adventuring and seeing the world around me. I have gotten all of these amazing pictures on a trip across the country. I recently went on an amazing adventure with someone special. I flew to Boston, Massachusetts to see my loved one who was living there and after a few days we drove home from there all the way back to our original hometown Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. It was an awesome experience and I am so thankful that I got the opportunity to see different parts of our world and environment, from big big mountains and lots of trees and forests, to dry flat Saskatchewan. I feel so connected to these pictures and it gives me the feeling that I am right back there living in that beautiful moment when I look at them.

 

When I read The Sound of Silverbells, I really felt when she said “The world is so richly endowed that the least we can do in return is to pay attention.” I think this is so true because people just take it for granted, they are not connecting with their world, nor do they care about it. Some people don’t take the time to stop and smell the flowers, when they should. I also connected with her when she said she likes to hike quietly, just looking, just being there. I am the same way, when I am somewhere new, walking around and feeling out the new environment, I like to take in every moment, smell the air, look at all of the amazing things around me, and cherish that I get to experience and live in this environment. It means so much more to me than just dirt and grass and trees, I see the world as a beautiful place and I will never forget the amazing experiences I have had in it.

  1. I liked looking through your photos and reading about your experience in nature. I used the same quote from the sound of Silverbells for my art piece this week. I think it is a very powerful quote and allows you to reflect on your own habits. I agree with you that a lot of the time people don’t stop to sell the flowers. How do you think people’s attitude towards the environment would change if they spent more time in nature? Do you think this is something we should be encouraging from a young age in our students?
