"This morning my mother, my little brother and I went for a walk down to the river by my house. It is a very nice walk with plenty of fruits trees around and mountains surrounding the area. We walked down
river and without saying anything to them about the activity and mainly out of my spontaneous attraction to some plants and rocks and trees, I started telling them about my attractions to that place and to specific things. I also used the approach of talking to nature, and calling the plants friends and saying things like: "excuse me friend, I'm walking past you, I don't mean to disturb you." It was fun! After a few minutes, my mother and my little brother were also expressing their specific attractions to the place and my little brother was also talking to the plants (even though I know he mainly see it as a game and likes doing what the older brother does).
It was a fun time down there, it was nice to feel that a place so close from my house can feel so different and so free from disturbances. It definitely feels like that place down there is just a world in itself, a balanced community."
Response from an online classmate overseas: "A simple yet powerful example of how we can include others in our relationship with Nature, lead by example. What a gift to give to little brother!"
