A change of scenery does one good. Whether it’s for writer’s block, problem solving, or the monotonous ccp/covid mandated environment for 19+ months, gardening, walks, and drives in the country are a godsend for me.
Nature is the art of God. – Dante Alighieri
Mother Nature’s mesmerizing diorama like a piercing sapphire blue sky, golden glow of the sun, or birds gliding effortlessly along — burgeon awe, joy, gratitude, and can evoke a calming sense of overall peace.
Nature speaks to us through different images, landscapes, colors, patterns, and forms of exquisite beauty. As we admire nature’s extravagance, our emotions and feelings become part of it. This harmonious balance makes our souls happy.
I believe the world is incomprehensibly beautiful — an endless prospect of magic and wonder. –Ansel Adams
I often savor quiet and taking time to really see, be aware of what is around me. Those serene scenes are just what I need when the world feels like it’s spinning out of control.
Mother Nature speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer. – Radhanath Swami
I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order. – John Burroughs
