I took this photo yesterday (unedited), up in the mountains with my Olympus Pen-F Macro Lens. Photography, especially the macro kind, is a reminder of the complexities and curiosities and beauty of life. It’s also a reminder to not take life for granted.
This weekend, if you’re able, get closer to people, plants, animals, rocks, and all the mundane things we look past. Scroll less, buy less, pay less attention to social media, read, write, take photos, doodle, sit quietly, take a friend to tea, volunteer, or do something unexpected and kind for someone.
Environmentalism needs a foundation of curiosity, space, attention, wisdom, and pause. The mindset of deep listen and attentiveness will prove more valuable in protecting our world than we realize.
