“In all things of nature there is something of the marvellous.” – Aristotle
I never cease being floored by the quality of thinking done by humans of history.
We have all struggled. We have all fought – both each other and ourselves. And, we have all taken – at one time or another – tremendous solace in nature.
My particular favourite slice of nature is the seaside. Something about it soothes and calms me. I always feel better after being in nature. ALWAYS.
And I think Aristotle figured it out, all those thousands of years ago. It inspires in us a sense of absolute wonder. We marvel at the wonder in front of us. (Hence “marvellous”.)
(If I didn’t know any better, I’d think Aristotle was a famous historical figure or something…)
Enjoy nature. Marvel at it. Tell me what you love about it, or where you find the most peace. I’d love to hear from you :)
