Consider these thoughts by Annie Dillard
At a certain point you say
to the woods, to the sea,
to the mountains, the world,

Now I will stop and be wholly attentive.
You empty yourself and wait, listening. . .
What was most wonderful?
What did you think was happening?
Out the window: Name all the things through the car window that connects you to nature every morning. Were you able to see anything new each morning?
Talk about: What has been your favorite nature experience? Plan your next nature adventure.
