Doctor Tree

“But some of the beneficial effects of trees and vegetation on humans may also arise from simply being around trees, since even the experience of seeing trees through a window seems to have a positive effect on health.”

“E.O. Wilson coined the term biophilia hypothesis to propose that humans have an instinctual and deep emotional relationship with nature that it is part of our subconscious. Love may be what is at work in a forest.”

For those of you who, like myself, work (ahem “worked”) in an office with a view something like this:

Let me offer you these photos as potential screensavers. They very well could save more than just your screen.

Thank you to Mr. & Mrs. M. for these photos. (Not giving out your names, so Campfire Tales groupies don’t show up on your front step.)

Dear Readers, if you can’t turn the photo into a screensaver, please contact me and I will send you the photo directly.

  1. Its interesting how your essence (soul?) craves certain things. I’ve always lived with a mix of trees and water. I grew up on the coast, two minutes walk from a park, and I currently live in the woods, 10 minutes drive from the ocean. In Belize I lived inland, in the rainforest, but there was a full creek running through the property. Does my soul crave these elements? Or does it just crave my childhood? Either way, I’ve found happiness in all those locations.
    Maybe I need to move to Kabul to test out my theory! No trees+ No Ocean = no happiness?
