"This above all: to thine own self be true.”

Posted by Anne Alastalo on

Sunny Thursday people,
Today I want to travel to deeper thoughts.
As you know, I am from Finland; from that land of snow and ice with gloomy dark winters and sunny summer nights.
From a country where the nearest neighbor can easily be a bear or a elk, and the houses are surrounded by forests and lush fields.

For Finns, nature is part of our soul landscape. It is a place to exercise, relax, calm down, fall in love, share the sorrors and worries, or just practically pick some food :)
But deep within each of us, nature is a part of us. It doesn’t matter if it’s a high mountain or a dry desert. We are part of our environment and again it is part of us. It affects our values, our behavior and our daily activities.

The world speaks loudly: Save nature! But are we really ready to save ourselves? That soul and heart that is equal to the environment that breathes like the tree and its mind brightens when it hears the song of a bird.
