Beatrix Potter had a strong everyday relationship with the natural world. Consider the ways you connect with the nonhuman world. Do you relate most to pets? To a garden? To the food you prepare and eat, and its plant and animal sources? To wilderness experiences, such as camping or hiking? Have you ever had an experience in which you felt an animal or plant was speaking to you, or was your friend?

How do the connections you feel or understand with the nonhuman world affect your daily choices about sharing the Earth with other beings? On a daily basis, how do you use natural resources? Interact with animal and plant life? Choose your food? Explore ways you might live more consciously as part of the interconnected web.
