In The Woods

September 19, 2009

Ahh…

Just returned from a walk in the woods. What can I say? For an hour I only saw two bikers and my spouse and I heard nothing but the birds. Uplifting experience.

Even saw a thought hanging from a tree. So tempting that I cut it and brought it home. It goes like this

We like nature for two reasons.

One is that it is our natural environment. Our womb. Humans have been living in human-made cities for very little time in our evolutionary history. Practically we’ll need loads of generations before we can consider the cities as a “natural” environment.

Second reason is that nature doesn’t ask us. Woods are grown by themselves lacking major interventions from human hands. And for once it’s good to know that what you’re looking at is no one’s thought, no one’s plan. It just is.
