"I think we may be moving towards a world where there are two different groups of people enjoying the outdoors. Those with a photo of a flower on their phones, and those who have smelled the flower." - Tristan Gooley (The Natural Navigator)
If I had seen this quotation yesterday I would surely have included it in my Quotes Quiz. Tristan is not a Luddite and is not making the point that technology has no place in supporting the lives of those of us who enjoy nature; but he is saying that our technical gizmos can interfere with our interaction with and enjoyment of nature if used inappropriately. More at Technology and Nature Debate.
I have been following Tristan's Natural Navigator blog for some time and am looking forward to reading his book, recently released in America. Watch this space for a review soon.
Meanwhile, nobody has come up with any answers to my Quotes Quiz yet. So go over there and have a shot.
