    I think everybody should make time to walk in the woods or among plant like. It's almost a surreal experience, because you can get away from the troubles of your life and watch the presents from nature.
     
  2. Right on!!!


    Yesterday was the first time I was with one with nature in a while. It's such a natural stress relief!!!! Today I felt so renewed and extremely happy :D Too bad for the people who don't get to experience it... or experience it, but don't appreciate it.
     
  3. Is that your cat? It's soooo beautiful! I grew up with a Siamese...very strong personalities!

    No, sadly it's not my cat. BUT I wish it was. Yeah, whenever I get a chance to walk somewhere or go home, I try to go through a wooded area or just look at all the trees in my neighborhood.

    We can explain what manmade structures are there for, but nature is full of mysteries.

    I take a lot from that song by the vines, Ain't no Room. One of my favorite things to see now is plants or grass growing through cracks in cement. The man-made street can't supress the power of nature!

    Most definitely! I feel very refreshed and restored after going for a hike. There's so much to learn to, I love bird watching.

    I've been so blessed to experience a range of natural beauty. i grew up on the border of PA and NY state, right on the Delaware river, then lived in the Virgin Islands for awhile and now am currently within 2 blocks of the Atlantic ocean. I've never considered myself a beach person before, but the ocean grows on you. it's such a powerful and awesome force of nature, it always leaves me breathless. i'd love to make a trip out to the desert soon...

    One regret I have about the early portion of my life was I didn't take enough time to enough time to enjoy nature - too much of it was sucked up indoors. In the relatively little time I've spent enjoying nature (the way it should be enjoyed), it's been absolutely splendid. Doing something simple as reading a book outdoors is incredibly fun. Hopefully, as the weather's quite nice and as summer's coming, I'll enjoy nature more.

    I spent my early youth outdoors all the time, then from about 10-15 was inside constantly playing video games...

    THen at 16 once I got my license I started going outdoors a lot more and have never stopped. Such a beautiful thing it is.

    :cool:
     
  15. Wow~ I never looked at it that way. I love learning something new everyday!!!
    I have a little bit more appreciation today than I did yesterday ;)

    A customer @ work filled me in that honey is bee vomit. Perhaps it's a known fact already to some, but 27 years on this earth is not enough. I just never knew.

    Well all you nature loving folks best do your part to help then.

    Volunteer to plant trees, vote for ecologically sounds policies, donate whatever time and money you can to environmentally sound organizations etc.

    :cool:

    Something that sucks is people cutting down forests and not replanting them. The worst thing that could happen would be the cutting of trees in your own neighborhood.
     
  19. I was just thinking about this the other day....

    I saw a little girl swinging from a Willow tree branch and I thought....how forgiving trees are to us.
    We cut them down, put nails in them, pull off their leaves and branches...among other things, and they continue to sustain us.

    It's ironic, or ignorant, how much we abuse trees and they are what keeps us living day to day....

    Enjoy nature!!!! It rocks!!!!
