Nature in our Lives 

Nature in Our Lives
I recently returned from a wondrously refreshing visit to the Colorado Rockies (Boulder, my "second home") where I spent time strolling along Boulder Creek, a beautiful clear mountain stream which runs the length of the city, and went more than once into the higher altitudes to revel in the massive gold of the aspen spilling down the mountain sides. The weather was good, the company delightful, and the timing perfect (the aspen were at their very peak of color.) I felt quite blessed.
For me, Boulder is a special place, where nature and culture combine to produce a unique setting. I was again reminded how important it is to maintain our connection with nature, whether landscape or the animals which inhabit it.
These amazing pictures of a young deer were forwarded to me by a friend, with the following text:

This tiny deer was delivered by Caesarean section at a wildlife hospital after his mother was killed by a car.
Little Rupert, who is so small he can fit in an adult's hand, was born after vets failed in their battle to save his mother. . . .
At just six inches tall and weighing just over a pound, he is now in an incubator in the intensive care unit at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire.
He has only recently opened his eyes. . . .
Staff are optimistic Rupert, now five days old, will make a full recovery.
"Deer are very, very tricky but this one has spirit. He's an extremely feisty little guy and quite pushy." Mr Stocker said.
