Was that something sharable/linkable? I Googled it and only found an OBGyn doctor.

I probably slurred, and I know I was horribly dry mouthed the whole time I was speaking. Her name is Matsumoto-

"In a wonderful piece on nature journaling, written by Karen Matsumoto , published on John Hopkins’ School of Education website, I read: “Feelings are a part of learning; it is now known that feelings are essential to deep understanding and sound decision making…. "Once the emotions have been aroused - a sense of the beautiful, the excitement of the new and unknown, a feeling of sympathy, pity, admiration, or love - then we wish for knowledge about the object of our emotional response. Once found it has lasting meaning." And the same day I found that article, I read this comment in one of our groups, by Rusty Parker, enthusiastic over all the new thing she was seeing in her own backyard- “It's amazing what I'm seeing now that I care!”

Shared awe:
