"When strangers meet, there is a natural curiosity which exists for the first few moments of introduction. When the meeting is between two soul mates that fate has brought together, life takes on a new sweetness that none can sour. When a man meets a creature and both show an instant interest in the other, a bond is formed that requires no words to bring forth understanding. We are reminded that all of our worldly wisdom sprang from wonder and awe and it is only when we look deep into nature that we start to understand all we need to know about ourselves.
Nature has always been mankind's best teacher. She unfolds her treasure to all who search out her ways. She teaches that man is not made up of himself only, and that all streams of knowledge flow to him from a thousand natural sources. Nature is all encompassing; she is the lay of the land, the ridge of its mountains, the reach of its valleys and the depth of its seas. All nature is part of a greater whole; one universal body. Nature is a natural reminder that we did not come into the world, but out of it like a shooting star from the heavens, a wave from the ocean, a grain of sand from the desert, and a speck of dust from the ground upon which we stand. Our very shape and form can be found within every shadow from the sun.
As William Shakespeare put it so succinctly, 'One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.' Enjoy your day and look out for God's little creatures on your journey, for they make this world a much better place to be and more interesting to know." William Forde: December 8th, 2016.
