Nature and Knowledge

Many things we see in nature are beautiful and interesting. This photo was taken while visiting the Vancouver Aquarium. My children were fascinated by the jellyfish tanks and how the jellyfish moved and existed which resulted in many discussions, internet searches, and questions about jellyfish and other marine creatures. Exposure and experience drive knowledge. It makes us curious. It makes us life long learners. Nature can be inspiring, relaxing, challenging, and endlessly giving if we take the time to appreciate it. Instead of watching another movie, reading another book, looking at another website, go outside. Go for a walk and listen to the sounds, look at the beauty and art the earth provides and find answers to some of the questions you have when you return. A jellyfish is not a fish it is gelatinous zooplankton.
