Since I am a nature girl, I love the writings and contributions of John Muir.
John Muir (1838-1914) was America’s most famous and influential naturalist and conservationist, and founder of the Sierra Club (1892). He has been called “The Father of our National Parks,” “Wilderness Prophet,” and “Citizen of the Universe.”
His words and deeds helped inspire President Theodore Roosevelt’s innovative conservation programs, including establishing the first National Monuments by Presidential Proclamation, and Yosemite National Park by congressional action.
In 1892, John Muir and other supporters formed the Sierra Club “to make the mountains glad.” John Muir was the Club’s first president, an office he held until his death in 1914. Muir’s Sierra Club has gone on to help establish a series of new National Parks and a National Wilderness Preservation System. From The John Muir Exhibit.
How fortunate for all of us that men and women had the vision and foresight to influence and establish National Parks that people worldwide now cherish. Our satisfying leisure experiences depend on the vision of those who came before to create and leave a legacy of the values of nature and conservation.
I had the image of the leaves and wanted to use it for something. I got the idea to place a quote about autumn over the image and I found this gem. Not only does the quote convey the season of autumn, it even incorporates the element of wind (air).
I created this image for my Facebook page that promotes my consulting business.
Please enjoy this contemplative leisure moment!
