People on the Beach

I have to be honest here. This Alphabet Game has had me stumped for days. Every time I sat down to address the letter “N” I’d get frustrated. All of the words I came across were so… wellNot Nice.

Narrow-minded Nagging with Neglect up the wazoo,
Naysayers Nitpicking and Nasty Name-calling too.

It’s so weird that “N” has so many Negative connotations! No, No, No… that is NOT good.

I starting rummaging through my summer photographs. Seeing people having fun at the beach made me think. There is mysterious magic in Nature. The ocean, the lake, the mountains… all of these places have something in common. They soothe us.

Nature makes us forget all of our troubles, even if only for an hour… and brings us back to life—Nature resuscitates us. We look up at the stars and realize that our problems, which seem gigantic, are pretty insignificant compared to this beautiful infinite universe.

So… in tackling the “N” word, I’ve come to realize how much I love Nature, and the way it Nurtures my soul.

    Nature encompasses all of our small selves and that in and of itself is healing. And how are we nurturing Nature in return? Alas, not nearly as well as Nature nurtures us.
