Matt’s Nature Quote

One of our students, Matt, really wants to share this idea with you that he wrote in his English class.

Nature is not just a place to hang out but a place to connect with others. Once you get out in it, with the birds singing, and the beautiful sunsets, it brings it all together, including your relationships with other people. When you’re talking to someone over a fire, with the sparks flying and the central focus of the flame, it sparks shared laughter, and the shared focus on the flame keeps a shared focus in the conversation, connecting everyone.
