natural healing

Even while constantly changing, nature is one of the few constants in life. This beautifully written book says volumes about the gifts of the wild. The author is a distinguished science professor and environmental activist who has always found great joy and fulfillment in the natural world. After a season of particular sorrow, she finds solace there, too. There aren't any definitive answers to the questions in her heart, but new insights make their way to the page:

So when you live? When you live, make it all. Don't wait for the rain to stop. Climb out of your tent with your mind engaged and your senses ablaze and let rain pour into you. Remember: you are not who you think you are. You are what you do. Be the kindness of soft rain. Be the beauty of light behind a tall fir. Be gratitude. Be gladness. - Kathleen Dean Moore
