The future will belong to the nature-smart—those individuals, families, businesses, and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world. –Richard Louv
A father of a young bicyclist told me “bicycling cures my son’s Attention Deficit Disorder.” Yes, that and much more. Bicycling fosters appreciation for the life we have outside. And increases our sense of value and investment in the natural landscape, while making us more a part of it. Check out this upcoming event in Santa Fe, and also Richard Louv’s provocative books.
“Louv makes a convincing case that we are entering the most creative period in history, that in fact the twenty-first century will be the era of human restoration in the natural world. This encouraging and influential work offers renewed optimism while challenging us to rethink the way we live.”
