Hello! You are cordially welcome to browse my site & photos of Nature & our World in perspective.
I am also known as Father Nature Consulting; Trying to bring the complexities of nature into simple terms that the average person can understand via written word and photography. In my photography i share my love of the natural elements with an artistic touch. My love of Nature and Photography combine into some unusual photos, yet leaving nature undisturbed as I found it for the next generation to enjoy.
My favorite Quote comes from a Lakota Sioux Shaman Grey Elk – who I met long ago:
*_The Lakota was a true naturalist – a lover of nature. He loved the earth and all things of the earth, the attachment growing with age. The old people came literally to love the soil and they sat or reclined on the ground with a feeling of being close to a mothering power.
It was good for the skin to touch the earth and the old people liked to remove their moccasins and walk with bare feet on the sacred earth.
The soil was soothing, strengthening, cleansing and healing…. Kinship with all creatures of the earth, sky, and water was a real and active principle. For the animal and bird world there existed a brotherly feeling that kept the Lakota safe among them and so close did some of the Lakota come to their feathered and furred friends that in true brotherhood they spoke a common tongue.
The old Lakota was wise. He knew that man’s heart away from nature becomes hard; he knew the lack of respect for growing, living things soon led to lack of respect for humans too. So he kept his youth close to its softening influence._* EVERY PART OF THIS EARTH IS SACRED: Native American Voices in praise of Nature by Jana Stone et al (Harper San Francisco CA) 1993, page 112.
