As the illustration relays, it matters not what the size of the Natural spaces one is traversing, the symbolic and enjoyment of Nature remains vibrant and intrinsically powerful whether one is watering the plants on the back porch or hiking in a State Park.

Our gratitude of Nature remains steadfast - and scales.
