ABOUT THE THEME- Nature
What can nature teach us about living with strength, vulnerability, and grace during these challenging times?
In the book Emergent Strategy by Adrienne Maree Brown, Naima Penniman reflects on the decentralized strength of oak trees: “Amidst the whipping winds and surging water, the oak tree held its ground. How? Instead of digging its roots deep and solitary into the earth, the oak tree grows its roots wide and interlocks with other oak trees in the surrounding area.”
It’s natural to be feeling alone and scared when storms come our way. But nature, in all its forms and stages, shows us time and time again that resilience comes from adapting, collaborating, and leaning on the support systems around us. By moving away from the idea that we need to be strong on our own, we open up possibilities in our lives and build our collective resilience.
Whether it’s in person or from afar, find the networks you can interlock with and ground yourself in them. Lean on those branches of support and hold on tight. Surviving and thriving in hard times requires us to bind together even while apart.
Our Salt Lake City chapter chose this month’s exploration of Nature, David Habben illustrated it, and it’s presented globally by WordPress.com.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER – Hosts of the “An Hour of Our Time” Podcast
An Hour of Our Time is a weekly research-based podcast in which we discuss a new topic each episode. Our topics range from history to biology, from warfare to sports, and from pop culture to human interest. Our live appearances include COSI After Dark and the Columbus Podcast Festival. Between the three of us, we have formally studied history, music, and education and hope to translate our interests, as well as our friendship of many years, into entertaining, informative, and hopefully funny conversation for others to learn from and enjoy.
ABOUT THE TALK – ” Nature During Isolation”
Our speakers (hosts of the “An Hour of Our Time” podcast) will be examining the ways in which nature has reacted to the sudden worldwide phenomenon of humans isolating themselves indoors. They seek to learn how this has affected things such as natural resource consumption, carbon emission, and native animal species’ behavior and habitat. Our speakers will also be examining these factors from an historical point of view by studying other events that have caused humans to pull back their influence on the natural world and how today might compare.
