Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

The earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed…
The earth, the air, the land and the water are not an inheritance from our fore fathers but on loan from our children. So we have to hand over to them at least as it was handed over to us.
~Mahatma Gandhi~
