The ocean is our backyard,

and its creatures aren’t hidden in the depths and darkness of the sea.

Whales, seals, and many others are experiencing their life just like us

they rely on oxygen just like we do,

they sing, love, dance and cry just like we do.

So let’s choose to be enchanted by all the wonderful things

that happen in nature

by the natural world where whales dream and plants talk to each other.

These beautiful things happen every day,

all around us as the world endures its battles.

I hope that you will too join me in sharing your own stories from nature,

from your backyard, wherever in the world that may be because

I believe it’s through those explorations the answers will reveal themselves.

The answers being how to care for the environment in a way that speaks to our values, purpose and our shared experience of life.
