During periods of personal struggle or collective crisis, the relentless pace of modern life can be suffocating. This is when turning to nature can serve as a balm for the weary soul…

Hear the mountains that call, with voices so old.
Hear the oceans that sing, a lullaby blue,
In every whisper of wind, in every heart bold,
There’s a chorus of nature, a rhythm so true.

So, my dear hearts, when sorrow dwells,
When burdens are heavy and spirits are frail,
Turn to the earth, to the streams and the dell.
Let nature embrace you; in its beauty, exhale.
