Happy Earth Day to You, Happy Earth Day to You

Do I sound like a broken record/CD/podcast? The earth IS us, people.

From the NY Times Magazine article by Paul Bloom:

"Many studies show that even a limited dose of nature, like a chance to look at the outside world through a window, is good for your health. Hospitalized patients heal more quickly; prisoners get sick less often. Being in the wild re­duces stress; spending time with a pet enhances the lives of everyone from autistic children to Alzheimer’s patients..."

Or, to quote Emily Dickinson's "Nature is What We See":
Nature is what we know
But have no art to say,
So impotent our wisdom is
To Her simplicity.
