'Every Colour Emits Light'
“Touch the Earth, feel the Earth, her plains, her valleys, her hills, and her seas; rest your Spirit in her solitary places.
The three great elemental sounds in Nature are the sound of Rain, the sound of Wind in a primeval Wood, and the sound of outer Ocean on a beach.
The Seas are the Heart's blood of the Earth.
Do no dishonor to the Earth lest you dishonor the Spirit of Humanity.
Expect Nature to answer to your Human values as to come into your house and sit in a chair. The economy of Nature, its checks and balances, its measurements of competing life - all this is its great marvel and has an ethic of its own.
We lose a great deal when we lose the sense and feeling for the Sun. When all has been said, the adventure of the Sun is the great natural drama by which we live, and not to have joy in it and awe of it, not to share in it, is to close a dull door on Nature's sustaining and poetic spirit.
When the Pleiades and the Wind in the grass are no longer a part of the Human Spirit, a part of very flesh and bone, Humans become, as it were, a kind of cosmic outlaw, having neither the completeness and integrity of the animal nor the birthright of a true humanity.
For a moment of night we have a glimpse of ourselves and of our world islanded in a stream of Stars - pilgrims of mortality, voyaging between horizons across the eternal Seas of Space and Time.”
~ Henry Beston 1888-1968 (USA)
