Art In Nature
ART IS INTEGRAL TO THE SPIRIT OF HUMANKIND, WHILE NATURE REPRESENTS THE ART OF THE UNIVERSE.
DANTE SAID: "NATURE IS THE ART OF GOD." If we think of healing as an art then nature can be seen as its most ancient practitioner. Scottish naturalist and environmental philosopher John Muir said: "in every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks." Aristotle noted that:"art takes nature as its model." It is true that art owes its origins to nature and does its best to imitate it.!! Jimmy Carter said: "Like music and art, love of nature is a common language that can transcend political or social boundaries."
Being so close to the magnificent ocean we do to need to travel far to find art in nature and nature in our art. The power, majesty, colors and even present flow of the waves is so peaceful and beautiful that it is hard to not appreciate and respect that force that permeates this planet is such a subtle way. It is this respect and appreciation for this beauty that hopefully can motivate us all to do our best everyday to protect and conserve that which nature provides on this planet! This valuation and appreciation is a gift both in the experience of it and the actions we take to embrace it.
Please consider this view as a deep and meaningful motivation to engage the conservation and protection of nature in all its forms.
