At one with nature

Though I spent the night in a remote cabin, passing no cars either on my way to or from the ferry, I am not alone: the mournful cry of the ferry bleats in the distance, birds and insects chirp just outside my open windows, and this friendly deer wags her tail contentedly as she munches the wild grasses we laughingly call a lawn.

Why is it so much easier to understand our connectedness to all creation when there are fewer humans around?
