About Me "God is the great motivator of what we call nature, and it has often been said that nature is the will of God. I prefer to say that nature is the only body of God that I shall ever see.

Anne Frank put it best when she said: "The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens and nature. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles."

I have a spiritual need with a devotion to Nature. I believe "god" is an acronym for "great outdoors." I do not observe the traditional religious holidays which I feel have become weighed down with the dogmatic “baggage” of our ancestors. I observe four main seasonal days, which celebrate nature.

While amongst nature and animals, my senses tell me there is most definitely a Universe. I agree to call it the only true divinity merely because I recognize no other divinity. However, the term 'divinity' does not mean to me what the term God does to a Christian or a Moslem or a Jew. I do not grovel before the Universe, nor do I worship it (though I do dance alone naked under the moon at times). I respect the Universe, its laws and its workings (those tiny few I understand and the vast complexity of those I will never have a hope of understanding). I am in total awe of and in love with it. I believe and feel that I am an interconnected part of it. I am a tiny strand in its totality.

What Gives Me Hope I don't know who quoted this, but it's something that I can relate to: "Realizing that everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of significance all occur to test the limits of our soul."

Quotation "When one tugs at a single thing in Nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."

-- John Muir

To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!'

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities; but to know someone here and there who thinks and feels with us, and though distant, is close to us in spirit - this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.

-- Johann Von Goethe

"The purity of a persons heart can be quickly measured by how they regard animals."

-- Unknown

"The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity."
