Some birds approach my youngest daughter, and she feeds them some crumbs. She can’t stop talking about all the birds! I recall the year we took my daughters on a trip to New York City. After a fabulous weekend of well-planned events and activities, it was the pigeons she loved most.
During the holidays–with so much pressure to provide fabulous, memorable experiences–I remember how joyous unmediated and unplanned nature experiences are. We watch birds, walk in the woods, and observe the beauty all around.
And this costs you nothing.
Years later, they’ll remember the birds.
