They say when something is far from your eyes it is also far from your heart and mind...

    

I wonder about our lives in this century so often and how much of our lives are spent in boxes both inside our minds and inside our homes. All we have to do to be awed by nature is to see nature, and to feel the magnificence of the planet we call home. I have found that the most religious people I have ever met are those who choose to be close to the earth and to the sky, who choose the simple life instead of the complicated and who find their god in the open skies and in the tiniest of flowers. It such a pity that most of us these days see our flowers on ipad and computer screens and how little chance we have to experience life with all of our senses.
