Nature is beautiful because it is alive, moving, reproductive. In nature we observe growth and development in living things, contrasted with the static or deteriorating state of the vast majority of that which is man-made. The flowing rivulets, sounding cataracts, the dancing winds, the smiling flowers, and the lofty mountains are only some of these beauties. Nature can fill our lives with real joy, goodness, and happiness. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical wellbeing.
