 The moment of my life that this picture captures is a crisp and happy memory for me - a combination of things that I love. Looking at it brings me to a time and place that I feel happy and at one with nature, so it felt like a very 'natural' fit for my Eco-Literacy avatar. It brings me to that magical time of year between winter and spring where the flowers are just beginning to bloom, and you can't help but to start wearing shorts and t-shirts even though it's still too cold outside. The air smells different and new, and for a few short weeks, the park by my house becomes a sea of buttercups. This photo encapsulates a 'perfect' and unshatterable memory for me, where I felt like a kid again, and could truly feel the magic of nature.
