How nice to see a flourishing return to the natural world. Whether it’s the continued state of the economy that’s forcing us to do so — who wants to drop $50 on a simple outing any longer? — it doesn’t matter. Take a walk; be happy in the beauty that surrounds us; or go hug a tree…. It’s good for the soul, as well as that of the green kingdom.
