Biophilia, a concept conceived by
Harvard University biologist Edward Wilson, introduced the idea that we are drawn to relationships with plants, animals, rocks, and streams as well as with people. We have a need to connect with the natural world. It is part of our innate nature.
Back in the 1800's, Henry David Thoreau said, "I think that I cannot preserve my health and spirits, unless I spend four hours a day ... sauntering through the woods and over the hills and fields ... free from all worldly engagements."
The pond is a constant reminder that the natural world is an incredible force of energy which allows us to watch as the smallest to the largest of natural objects shift, change and regenerate. Spring explodes with millions of sprouting plants and leaves followed by the quiet relaxing lushness of summer. Fall evolves from glowing colors to the dumping of those millions of energy packed leaves, leaving us in a frigid nearly gray environment of winter. To watch is to embrace the positive future when in very little time, we begin again.
