A quote borrowed from Henry David Thoreau - and one of my favorites - speaks volumes:

"I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees."

The power of our innate connection to nature is no more apparent than spending time in the woods amongst trees. I absolutely, unequivocally know this to be true. I also know that for so many humans, especially urban dwellers, the likelihood of experiencing time in the woods with trees is, well, very unlikely. Studies abound on nature-deficit disorder and the overwhelmingly negative impacts of the digital age on our emotional, mental and physical health - the latter a contributing factor to the human disconnect to that otherworldly natural world.

Oftentimes it is geographical distances or threat of crime or even pollution that keeps us indoors and detached from the wilderness. Yet developing a connection to nature does not always require a trek into the woods, climbing a mountain or rafting a river. It can start at the root of all things - the understanding that nature is everywhere and direct access occurs with each breath we take, with each upward gaze at a blue sky or starry night, and the physical sensations offered by a passing breeze and the warmth of the sun.
