Earth Month Tip: Take Time to Enjoy Nature

Today I was walking across campus and someone almost walked into me because she was so busy texting she was barely staying on the sidewalk.  We live in an exciting and changing world.  Ninety percent of adults have a cell phone and81% of cell phone users are texting or receiving texts.  Texting isn’t evil or bad, but we all need to look up and around to see, listen, smell and touch the beautiful rebirth of nature in the spring.  It’s magical.   I hope you will make time today and this weekend to enjoy nature. This slideshow shows some of my favorite springtime sightings from around the globe.
