Saturday, April 20th was the first day of National Park Week – an annual tradition celebrating, enjoying and giving back to our country’s great natural and cultural landscapes. For the next five days, parks across the country will waive their entrance fees to provide free access to thousands of miles of trails and coastlines, as well as battlefields, archeological sites and waterways.
As the weather turns to sub zero, maybe we can have time for the Ritual of Family Dinner. Read more and hear at GardenGreenAngels.com. Laurie David, a Connecting for Change keynote in 2011, stresses the importance of sitting down with those we care about, be they roommates, children, or neighbors, and engaging in conversation. Think of all the great things you learned the last time you sat down and enjoyed dinner. Please take a moment to listen to the words of Laurie David and I hope tonight’s dinner table is filled with great food and even better conversation.
