I really enjoyed your entry on the importance of nature and how it can make our lives more meaningful. I agree with most of what you said in terms of materialism and our compulsive consumerism. So much of today’s products are made to eventually throw away and the impact this has on our environment (and eventually our well being) will ultimately be humankind’s downfall. I’m glad you took MG’s advise and added visual content to your blogs. Good job.
