“My spirit refreshes itself when I get more nature, and sometimes the bigger the better. Why? Big doses of Big Nature feed my soul with the basic elements of life on planet Earth: more oxygen, the green of chlorophyll, the microbes in rich soil, the long-view perspectives and panoramas that put us in our size and place, and then the gratitude that comes from experiencing such natural joy.” - Lynda LeMole, Sucess Magazine
