It’s the place where twittering isn’t 140 characters including spaces. It’s a place where your brain is allowed to be in a mode of spontaneous rather than directed consciousness (leading to exhaustion and stress). It is a place where noticing the fine detail is a path to gaining a broader perspective, and where things are not at odds as they often seem to be wherever we look these days. There is flow which is the key to all authentically fulfilling experiences. The amazing thing is that it is usually free and you can go there at any time. Where is this and why aren’t people there more?
As you already know from my previous blog entries, I am a big fan of the park. What you might not know is that this 2009 marks 100 years since Sweden’s (and Europe’s!) first national parks were established and that today, 24 May, is the high point of this celebration. In honor of this happening, Naturens år 2009 has been established, a site filled with superb greenery, inspiration and events that all of you, my fellow tree huggers, will adore.
