Being Nature

Being in nature at dawn always comforts me. But how can you be in what you are? All of our being, juices, flesh, and spirit occurs as nature; nature surrounds, permeates, effervesces in, and includes us. At the end of our days it deranges and disassembles us like old toys banished to the basement. There, once living beings, we return to our non-living elements, but still and forever remain part of nature.
-Diane Ackerman
