Studies show that those who live among nature are the most happy and healthy. That doesn't surprise us.

I love sitting on the porch watching the different birs and squirrels in the yard.

Noted. No surprise there. Humans were originally intended to be part of nature, living in harmony with everything else in creation -- not sequestered away in front of boob tubes and cloistered inside fake-lit boxes. As soon as we break out, so to speak, of course we'll feel better!

Thanks Cher1 I have known about the effects of tranquility and peace in your soul for years. I am an avid hiker and today I just came home from a 20 km walk on the nature trails as I am training for the Camino in September.

No surprise there - we should all take note!

humans were meant to live in villages surrounded by nature, not in cities. I live in the city now, but I sure miss the farm I grew up on.

For 3 years I lived on over an acre of untouched forest. They were the happiest years of my life. There were no street lights,even curbs. It took me months to get used to pitch black. Then again, I would sit on my deck, and listen to the thousands of bats in my trees. The deer would come up and eat the fruit I had for them(I would go to the local market, and steal their over ripe fruit)
I still have pictires of the bear cub who slept on my car hood after I parked - I guess because it was warm.

The peace and quiet of a park, listening to the birds sing, all beautiful. Even when there are others around, maybe walking like you or with the dog etc it always makes me smile.

Nature, in itself, is our saving grace.

If we somehow, develop the sense to appreciate our magnificent planet, without destroying it in the meantime, perhaps, we WOULD live, longer and healthier
Someone very close to me in the past, always said that we have to take a drive to the countryside and breathe in the fresh forest air. I never quite, appreciated what he meant until we made these trips a regular occurrence.
From that time, every vacation had to include an area where we could do just that.

Yes, all the city dwellers, you're welcome back into the wild and live and grow your own food and be happy.
But the farmers who live out here are not happy, they are greedy, stingy, racists, butchers, hunters and sell the animals out to other hunters.
It's the city dwellers who change the world to a more animal/humane-friendly and caring world, I am quite sure. I have lived here in the country for 35 years now.

I sit in the afternoons in my backyard to watch the birds and the squirrels drink the water and eat the food I put out for them, and it brings such peace to my life just by watching them!

Peace and tranquility - love it. This is why we can't take Mother Nature for granted. Fight anything and everything that will destroy the environment. Our lives are being threatened by poor energy and land management. It is refreshing to see people standing up for the environment and sustainable energy.
