“Ah, dear nature, the mere remembrance, after a short forgetfulness, of the pine woods! I come to it as a hungry man to a crust of bread.”
-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
Nature can nourish us, refresh us, and replenish us. Time spent with nature helps to still the mind, to quiet the activity of our thoughts. Nature provides us with everything we need for our bodies with its bounty of fruits, grains and vegetables. Yet nature’s “food for thought” – its pure silence, is just as necessary for our health, mentally, physically and spiritually.
