“When we look to social media and news media to find out what a social group thinks about an issue, we should bear in mind that we’re not getting a balanced picture. We’re getting a small sample of people who happen to be motivated enough to write something, or who are confident enough to write, or who have been empowered (or have empowered themselves) to write. If we want to know what members of the wider social group think, rather than just a few individual members who might or might not be representative, then we’ll have to do more.”

I have always been a walker, a wanderer, an observer of nature large and small. Each morning as I head off with B.B. (Billy Bounce my life coach ) my eyes touch softly on plants and birds and animals and insects. It is a joy to stop and observe and even communicate with these beings.
But it continually surprises me how few people allow themselves the time to see the life around them. Many times a neighbour or stranger striding past will stop and (if they are brave enough) ask quietly “what are you looking at?” And when I point it out they are delighted too. But how can folk walk around and just not see, that astonishes me.
Recently I have connected with a young woman who is a trained teacher and who is exploring the idea of Forest Schooling, or Wilding or what ever title you give it. It is an incredible concept I hope to learn more about and maybe find a role as a Nana-storyteller or Nana-play companion.
Quite exciting for me. As basically the concept seems like what I used to call common sense parenting. I treasure my memories of the freedom of school holidays when ever schedule was thrown aside and the days were our own. We could choose pjs all day, or forest fantasy adventures or ANYTHING.
Looking forward to how this develops
