I’d like to welcome you to my blog site, The Old Naturalist. My name is Larry Wade, and I’ve had a passionate affair with the Planet Earth for most of my life. I have a deep and abiding respect for this amazing rock-and-water covered sphere where life expresses itself in millions of different forms, and in a set of interconnected systems.
I also have deep concerns about how we are treating our home. We have a lot of work to do to preserve the beauty and and living things on our planet.
One of the reasons why I continue this blog is my desire to help readers develop a relationship with the Earth. My personal mission can be summed up:
A Voice for the Earth.
Honoring Life and Seeking Beauty
Connecting, Learning, Healing
It’s my hope that you’ll find something in here–words, pictures, activities, poetry, something–that will stir something deep inside you and make you want to get outside. Take a walk. Look up. Look down. Listen. Close your eyes. Get dirty. Get wet. Re-introduce yourself to this amazing place we too often take for granted. Fall in love with Nature. Pass that love along to someone else–especially a child.
And let me know what you find.
