Reconnecting with nature

In Children of a Virtual world, ( Guardian, 3rd January 2010) carried photographs of our youthful generation all attached to technology, seemingly connected to eachother but disconnected from a living environment that nurtures us. Surprisingly easy to turn around according to Satish Kumar from Resurgence.




Nature indeed has the ability to draw us out of ourselves. As the country comes to a standstill because of snow it occurs to me that as adults we run inside our homes and our younger children cannot wait to enjoy and envelop themselves in the beauty, fun and sheer abundance of the beauty of a snow landscape. Lets join them and remember.

Absolutely fabulous video. After spending three days in bed with flu, I feel sick at my lack of outside time. Yet others live like this year in year out, I don't know how.

Amen bother. its so important to take the time out of your day to be with Gods creation. there are so many distractions in the world that keep our heads down instead of looking around at the beautiful world and looking up at the beautiful sky. It seems like a blessing to have all of the luxuries that we have in life, but

"its amazing how we can do without the necessities in life provided we have the little luxuries." isnt that crazy? we as a human-society need to pause. take a breath in and out, and realize that we're all here together, and we never really even enjoy it.

good teachings man. have a good one.
