This act of connecting our dwellings to the earth is a symbolic union between nature and us. As we attach ourselves and dwellings to the earth, we are grounding our anxieties and insecurities.
- “Buy land. They ain’t makin’ any more of the stuff.” ~Will Rogers
- Go camping and experience the joy of locating the “perfect” spot for the tent. One night in a tent will bring an immediate appreciation of your home, and connect you to the origins of dwelling.
- Support or organize urban forests, pocket parks and bike paths in your neighborhood.
