I have found that embedding myself in nature has healed the hole in my heart. I never realized through the years of self-negligence that I was taking for granted the natural world. The sorrow of being unable to feel was extreme for me most of my life. By reconnecting with the natural world, I was able to experience all my five senses again. I am now able to see that this world is not empty but actually full of dazzling life that is worth connecting and experiencing.
