A Natural Joy in Earthly Living!

“If there is one thing clear about the centuries dominated by the factory and the wheel,
it is that although the machine can make everything from a spoon to a landing-craft,

a natural joy in earthly living is something it never has and never will be able to manufacture.” 

— Henry Beston, (1888-1968) American writer and naturalist

My name is Mara. I am Minnesota born and raised. Four seasons, forests, farms, and 10,000 lakes have given me a deep appreciation for nature. Photography helps me to share this love with others. And, once in awhile, I find myself interested in sociology. Go figure.
