...if it all means nothing.

“If nothing else, Earth wants you to pause to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, to feel the breeze, to listen to the crunch of leaves, and to remember all the past year has brought. And the years before that.” Writer and consultant Cameron Navarro encourages us to pause, grieve, and treasure each moment.
