Discover your passions, respect the Earth

[Photo: Ezra near the top of the world 2007]

"Live your dreams, discover your passions, adventure safely with care, consideration and respect for planet Earth. Create a connection with the natural environment to encourage yourself and others to protect our world and all living things, discovering the true and natural essence of humanity."

This is the philosophy of Hayley Shepard. From New Zealand, Hayley is visiting and kayaking part of Newfoundland. Welcome. Enjoy.

I've sometimes wondered who lived at the top of the world. That Ezra lives so close to the top is wonderful news! Three cheers for Ezra!

Such profound words to live by - your friend is wise. And you, Allison, are living and walking such an important life with your children. I applaud you!

I love Ezra at the top of the world - I just finished reading Last Child in the Woods, by Richard Louv - most certainly one of the most important books of our generation (I think as important as Rachel Carson's Silent Spring in the 60's) In it, he shows the positive effects that experiences in nature have on our children. Yours are growing vibrant and strong with Newfoundland's spirit at their core.

Micheal, Ezra I'm sure believes he is there. Who's to say he is not.

Deborah, thank you for this. And I will look for this book to read this summer.
