Stop and appreciate the beauty of nature? It can be anything as simple as a bird digging for food, the sun setting or rising, or cattle lowing impatiently as they settle down for the night. This may sound cheesy, but it's these little things that make life worth living in my opinion.
Thoughts anyone?

Heh heh, I'm off to the park with a friend in half an hour, so yeah, I suppose I can't really argue with that.

I do that all the time. Just stopping and looking around you is, for me, very enjoyable.

Probably one of the reasons I'm doing a Biology degree too.

Look out the window at the scummy streets and phallic skyscrapers. They ARE a part of nature, same as a bird's nest is. So long as something is manipulated by nature i.e. us, as we are animals, then it too is natural.

Enjoy diesel fumes.

Yeah, I do. At a place me and my friend sometimes go, we climb waterfalls. It is beautiful once you get to the top.

Yeah, sometimes. But then i realize there are bugs out there and I decide it would be better if a mall took its place. No, I really appreciate nature, its nice to sit out side on those summer nights and look at my back yard.


I enjoy rice.

Strange you should say that cause usually back in the states it's such a rat race and stuff that I really don't ever get a chance to do such things. But at night I do like to step out back and stare at the stars and and wonder what if? and stuff like that.

Now since I've been deployed I have a lot of free time on my hands to stop and stare and enjoy the clear skies out here when it's not downpouring and other wonders of gods green earth.

I don't think any of us do it as often as we should. There is beauty all around us that we don't appreciate, which is a real shame.

I'm lucky enough to have a trail system right by my house that offers an awesome break from the usual urban sprawl, but I rarely go down and just wander around anymore. I think I might do that in a little bit.

Nature is depressing, because there's so little of it left.

But when I do see it, I make a big deal.

Quite often actually. I find it very enjoyable to just take everything in. Being in a big city I'm lucky to be living near the lake so me and my friends usually just go near the lake to sit and think. And no we don't get high when we do this.

It's not cheezy, because we've all done it. Its pretty satisfying.

Although when someone asks you what your doing and you tell them, they think your a fuckin weardo. Assfaces.
