Sun and Surf and Sand in my Toes by Kirk Moore

Sun and surf and sand in my toes
Is all my brain and body need
Sun and surf and sand in my toes
Is very good indeed

Are you singing a tune in your head?

Yeah -- I think I want to start a punk band.

OK, not really. And sun and surf and sand in my toes (or the original three from Ian Dury . . .) aren’t all my brain and body need.

But my brain and body do need sun and surf and sand in my toes.

My brain and body need more - not less - nature. I need a deeper connection with trees, soil, water, wind, and sun.

Why? Because it helps bring my system into balance. Creation is so much more than a  simply a Bible story and something for human beings to use up for the sake of powering more and more machines.

Creation is a sacred, healing, core-balancing work of art.

And I need it. I just spent a few days absorbing it.

What is it that helps bring your system into balance?
