Rethinking nature for more joyful experiences

My friend recently posted this picture on his blog:

Rethinking Nature

As I looked at I recognized how whimsical nature is. If we really break down what things in outside are we see that in reality those things are a mix of strange, silly, and rather profound. It provides a renewed sense of nature’s important role in our lives. The natural world provides us the best entertainment around, but it also reconnects us with the fact that we are as much a part of it as it is a part of our lives. A forest affects our human existence as much as we do to a forest.

We need to continuously look for the amazing things we might find outside, because quite frankly that is what we need to do to form an appreciation of the natural world and hopefully a sense of responsibility for its health–and ours as well.
