Nature is Pretty Great

In nature, I find the awe and wonder of pure survival without any modern conveniences to protect against and ease the basic struggle to exist. I'm in a place where there is respect and honor in hard work. 

In nature, catastrophe, no matter the intensity or volume of apparent devastation such as a forest fire, volcanic eruption, or natural extinction is merely a reason and opportunity to become something different and new.  I'm in a place where there is reason and hope. 

In nature, flowers bloom and trees lose their leaves both as a matter of accepted course.  Seasons of life are embraced without regret and with anticipation of what comes next.  I'm in a place where there is acceptance and promise. 

In nature, the smallest blade of grass and the largest standing tree each have their own place, water and granite are in the same stream, some leaves turn red and others brown or yellow and sometimes on the same tree, in one day the sun and the moon can course across the sky, and on the same land the rain and snow can fall.  I'm in a place where there is balance and tolerance.

In nature, rocks fall, the female reproduces, seashells and sunflowers have logarithmic spirals, and all snowflakes have six corners.  I'm in a place where there is order and discipline. 

Nature is pretty great.
