No matter what country we find ourselves in this day and age, we can experience the meaning of what it truly means to be alive, by sensing the beauty around us.This is one of the primary reasons that national and state parks are not just a pleasant amenity, but necessary for human appreciation. Even New York has a Central Park. We can experience the stimulation, contemplation, and re-creation with nature that isolation actually enables, because it removes distraction and connects us directly with the universe.
In Japanese, "Shinrin-yoku" is a term used to describe the relaxation gained from being in nature. It is a therapy that was developed in Japan during the 1980s, becoming a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.For self-preservation and inspiration, it would be truly beautiful if every language had such a word, and practice.

This painting, "Komorebi," was inspired by the Japanese word to describe light on objects as filtered through tree branches.
