Linda Fuller: Nature soothes us

Nature soothes us

Regarding the Jan. 6 editorial, “A blizzard of white”: Of the lyrical, always distinctive and soothing editorial pieces, this one is particularly noteworthy on the winter migration of swans and geese.

Nature’s context is reassuring and peace-affirming for we who are living souls in our vibrant state and changing planet. We are reminded and uplifted that we can “discover a diversity of the enchanted beauty ... forever floating upon those silvered waves on which our dreams are founded.”

Thank you for reminding us to pay attention to our abundant gifts at hand, to all that is beautiful, to innocence and simplicity. Hope for the New Year indeed.
