    Love this beaver post. Merry Christmas to you! As gifts from my husband I received your wonderful books Naturally Curious Day by Day and Naturally Curious, A Photographic Field Guide! Your blog posts help make my science classes fun and meaningful for my students and me. I love to teach about wildlife so kids will enjoy and care more for nature’s critters. Heartfelt thanks. Sandy

    Even in the darkest time, peace, hope, and even joy await! May we all find comfort in nature this coming year.

    The Peace of Wild Things

    When despair for the world grows in me
    and I wake in the night at the least sound
    in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
    I go and lie down where the wood drake
    rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
    I come into the peace of wild things
    who do not tax their lives with forethought
    of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
    And I feel above me the day-blind stars
    waiting with their light. For a time
    I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
