Skipping School

Today we skipped our regular morning routine and took off on a nature hike instead. We saw a blue heron and a raccoon fishing side by side in the soft morning light. We identified a plant I’d never heard of before – a beautyberry – and discovered that it is native to Japan and plays a role in a famous work of Japanese folklore, The Tale of Genji (which now I have to read because it sounds so interesting!). And this was all in the first five minutes of our walk…

I think it’s safe to say we found some ‘school’ out there in Nature.
