Item Summary

No. of item(s):
Total amount:

This is a collection of inspirations by a naturalist and lover of nature. They arose from the opportunity to do walks, hikes, runs, and cross country skis during which time was spent sitting alone in silence and stillness in nature. These inspirations describe both what was seen by the eyes and heard by ear and the heart at each location and each has a photo taken at the site where the inspiration occurred. This book is the result of practicing not thinking when alone in nature and instead just observing and listening. The locations are in the tallgrass prairies of the Flint Hills of Kansas and the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. This book is created in the hope that others will find inspiration for their own mind and heart in reading it and be inspired to pursue their own encounters with nature, even if through the simplicity of looking out a window. The book title comes from the author's adopted nature name, Falling Snow, and because the inspirations arrived like snow falling.

I was born and grew up in Springfield, Massachusetts where my favorite activity was wandering alone in the woods behind my father's house. I have a Master's and PhD in Agronomy and after a two year term in the Peace Corps spent most of my adult life teaching agriculture, first in South Africa and then in Kansas. I still direct a nonprofit called Jubilee Farms that supports agricultural training in Africa. I am also a native plant naturalist and have led many guided tours to identify native plants in both Kansas and in Colorado. I am now retired and live in Boulder, Colorado. My favorite activity is spending time alone in nature, observing and listening while hiking or cross-country skiing. I am married, have three sons and eight grandchildren.
