~ Woods Of Wisdom ~

“Often you can learn more about life from a simple walk in the woods than you can from any institutional education facility or foot-long textbook. If you kept your eyes open on those walks then there was an infinite amount of wisdom to be found all around you. The falling leaves taught you the beauty in letting things go; the meandering streams taught you not to bulldoze your way through life in a linear and rigid fashion; the birds recycling the broken branches to build their homes taught you it was better to work with nature rather than trying to conquer it. A person who spends all their life studying textbooks but does not take the time to return to nature will lose touch with the greatest teachings in life. Keep your eyes open to the beauty of the natural universe and often you will learn more from a simple walk in the woods than any teacher or textbook could possibly convey.”
