Default Finding Zen in a Patch of Nature

"It is this kind of perception, halfway between metaphor and field note, that makes his voice a welcome entry in the world of nature writers. He thinks like a biologist, writes like a poet, and gives the natural world the kind of open-minded attention one expects from a Zen monk rather than a hypothesis-driven scientist. He avoids terms like “nature deficit disorder” and refuses to scold the bug-fearing masses. His pitch is more old-fashioned, grounded in aesthetics as much as science."

I could have read this link for hours and hours on end.
It includes a HUGE variety of interesting topics and chuck full of beautiful photos to go with practically every topic mentioned. It is definitely something I will look more deeply into.
Very nice find Suunto!
