An inspiring little book which heartily encourages the reader to engage with nature by looking more closely at their surroundings and by allowing themselves to be curious about what they encounter with their senses no matter how humble. The author convincingly proposes that this endeavor to connect with nature, besides being good for us, can result in truly inspired originality in our thinking and creative ideas.
