Yesterday, I went with a friend to a beautiful space: Wavehill. It is a short drive to the Bronx. Beautiful weather, large trees, green grass, an overlook of the Hudson River, every variety of flower, children playing, adults walking and sitting on the Adirondack Chairs.
Wednesday nights over the summer they have dancing barefoot on the grass. Another little paradise.
There is a gallery that always has a show with a theme regarding nature. The one there now is: Sound the Alarm: Landscapes in Distress. Various artists are showing pieces concerned with the environment, global warming, fires, land erosion, loss of water. It could be depressing, but it is a warning. Nature needs our awareness; our help.
I am thinking that this is always true. If we are always aware of ourselves and our environment, we can stay in tune with it. Like when I look around my apartment, it seems to be a reflection of my mind. Our environment is, I think, a reflection of us and our planet. Man/Woman can learn so much by just being aware and not denying what is clearly in front of us.
Sometimes, I fear to be aware, yet it is always a key to understanding and health. Being aware is not judging myself as good or bad. I do not want to be a victim to the elements. Awareness allows me to realize what exists and then I can choose to take action or....not.
I suppose you know by now that I love the Beatles!
