Back to Nature

7 December 2020 – In these strange times, when everything from monarch butterflies to grizzly bears is teaching us distance …

why not let Nature also teach us punctuation?

Trees, for example.

If we just pay enough attention, they will demonstrate for us the full stop …

suspension points …

the exclamation mark …

parentheses …

and even…

yes, and even …

the colon!

The other possibility, of course, is that I have entirely too much time on my hands.
