30 Days of Druidry – Foundations: Nature and Earth

I’m going to cheat a little bit today and link to a couple previous posts.  When I started to think about what I could say about this topic, I realized that I already wrote about it as part of my DP.  I’ve done more writing about my growing relationship with Nature and the Earth Mother, such as my recent post, The Divine in the North Country, but my original essay on Working with Nature still rings true.  I’ve grown some since writing it.  I’m married, in a new home, a stricter vegetarian, and more experienced in my path.  I’ve started to make some of my own cleaning products now.  I’ve started to eat more locally and favor handmade or local crafting materials when possible.  My once little garden is, while still small, much bigger than it used to be.  Nature continues to be one of the most important spiritual experiences in my life.  Nature nurtures my soul, teaches me, calms me, and inspires me.  It’s why I am who I am.

Forgive me for simply reposting old material, but I’m not sure if I could say it any better.  Perhaps when I’m five or ten years older, my perceptions will change even more and warrant a more thoughtful reexamination.  For now, I need to relax and prepare myself for a minor oral surgery tomorrow.  When I last visited my oral surgeon for a consultation, I had a good view out of the window.  I could see the trees.  I hope I can see them tomorrow as I lose consciousness…
