“There is no evidence given in this abstract that indicates that adopting any of these recommendations will actually reduce obesity.”

More than eye-candy

“The nature of our national parks is bound to the nature of our own humility, our capacity to stay open and curious in a world that instead beckons closure through fear.

Terry Tempest Williams

The world is not enough. Or is it?

“After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, love, and so on — have found that none of these finally satisfy, or permanently wear — what remains? Nature remains; to bring out from their torpid recesses, the affinities of a man or woman with the open air, the trees, fields, the changes of seasons — the sun by day and the stars of heaven by night.”

Walt Whitman
