As with all things artistic in our family my husband has all the talent. His nature notebook will be something to pass down to the children and grandchildren. Mine is just an example of doing it anyway. In fact, when I first thought about reading this chapter, I thought it would be a non-starter for me. What could I say about drawing? Then I remembered the nature notebooks. Over the years I came to firmly believe in the value of drawing and looking at nature. Drawing is a way of seeing, like a metaphor.

The accumulation of nature notebooks reminds me of the good things that have happened in our home over the years. I am so thankful we tried in spite of obstacles and often lack of talent. I think our nature notebooks might be my favorite family artifacts.
