Unbridled joy filled the air.
At work, I find that, regardless of the weather, a brief afternoon walk outside wakes me up and rekindles my efforts. Like forgiveness, experiencing nature presses the reset button, allowing me to start anew.
Most of us have some access to forests, waterways or green spaces. Whether we do or not, actions may be taken to connect us to the earth.
Earth Day is tomorrow. The folks at EarthDay.org started their One Billion Acts of Green campaign in 2010. Having reached that goal in only two years, they’re now going for two billion, and they offer a variety of suggestions for your involvement.
Connecting and reconnecting with nature reconciles us with our past and anticipates our future as we acknowledge this simple truth:
We are nature.
Life comes from the earth and life returns to the earth. Zhuangzi
