You have to get author and illustrator Matthew Cordell’s new book hello! hello! and read it.
To your kids.
And to yourself.
Such a beautiful message.
This book highlights that all the technology our culture consumes keep us — disconnected.
I am a big believer in simple, slow living.
And this lovely book is a gentle reminder for us to seek connectedness in person with our loved ones, with nature, and with wonder and awe.
That child-like need to explore the outdoors, to see the beauty in animals and nature, and touch, hug, and love people in real-life.
Not just with our hands, but with our hearts.
Here are some great images from the book:
So, power off those phones, turn off the tv, and the computer, and slow down.Live the simple life.
Take a deep breath. It is ok to slow down. It is good to slow down. Life is not a hurry, a race, or a climb.
It is a joy, a happiness, and a blessing.
Be mindful of what is right in front of you.
