We need to re-establish our connection and links to the natural world

We need to re-establish our connection and links to the natural world

I have had this conversation many times with acquaintances and friends, and while some say that we are no longer natural beings and that we cannot come back to the way we were because we have lost many natural things as far as even the instinct, some others say they wish also that we could get closer to nature and recover that essentiality of our being. For me, I still feel a certain eagerness to feel closer to nature and learn to see, listen and feel again, to be able to read and understand nature.

I know that because we live in cities and our ways of life have changed dramatically it may be not an easy task, but the road is possible and, I guess all of us that want to go through that path have to start somewhere. For me, right now, is to find a place where nature and ‘civilisation’ be close and start paying more attention to the signs of the natural ‘world’.

This note depicts a totally different way of life while highlighting the importance and beauty of the relation with the whole.
