Connecting with Nature

went out for a walk in the 'wilds' earlier. It was windy and rainy and though I was walking down country lanes not mountain paths I began to feel a real earthy wildness. The wind blew stronger and stronger and as I connected with it I felt the raw nature of it, the primal energy of Nature. It felt like it could smash the world to pieces. I realised something really interesting 'wildness' is a state of mind, a state of being, natural is within.

I feel that we're all being invited to connect more with Nature, and the essence of Nature within. Even if you live in an urban area, to connect with a tree, or a plant - they contain the essence of Nature, and a resonance of the wildness that is there. Honour the rythms and cycles of the year, yourself, nature.
