The Professor has provided her fellow bloggers with the task of posting anything to do with nature. In celebration of the Northern Hemisphere returning from the depths of winter and entering spring with new life blossoming while small shoots of greenery and colour are awakening from their hibernation.
The brief left me a lot of room to cover in the post and I'm not too sure where to even begin. As I've been suffering from blogger's block. So I've decided to be very random, and as one prominent blogger advised me just have fun with it.
What Nature means to me
Nature is a physical occurrence that comes through a variety of physical things like plants animals, and diverse landscapes or by-products created by Nature. Nature is something man has tried to tame and control both environmentally and internally. Just as a man thinks that nature has been conquered it rebels against its bondage. Nature shows it can't be controlled by man it breaks through and toys with man's supercilious attitude. Suggesting that nature has a sense of wisdom and humour few will ever understand. I love nature as it has the most paradoxical qualities and confuses all. Nature is the most indescribable, beauteous thing, yet it can be most vilest and repugnant thing. It's the strongest and most fragile thing, its most tempestuous, chaotic and destructive force of life; it can be most enjoyable and relaxing force with wondrous awe as it's able to create life. Nature is all around us, it surrounds us, live next to us, it live within us, it within us and apart of us. We are nature. We can't control it and will outlive man.
The Importance of Nature to me
As I've gotten older, I feel as though I've started gaining more insight into the importance nature plays on my holistic well-being, and the world I live. I'm also becoming more anxious about what will happen if man doesn't change and adapt our ways.
Over the last couple years, I learnt slow down, stop, listen and take in nature and the feel the energy it produces. One my favourite things is jumping on a bus with my backpack and camera heading up into the middle of the countryside and explore the local surroundings and capturing on my camera for my photos collection. Especially since the Boyfriend brought my awesome new camera that I'm still awestruck. I realised when I feel depressed as soon as I'm in nature I feel more regenerated again and the negative energy has dissipated. Every time, I'm in a Natural environment I feel relaxed and I get lost in the complexity of it. I love to stop, listen and feel as though I'm open to the wonders of the world, and I'm quite happy lost in my world.
