This is a very short blog post with a thought provoking quote from Walt Whitman. A famous, controversial American poet and humanist of the 19th century.
Surely his powerful words are even more meaningful and appropriate, in our present age of material consumerism and individualism?
“After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality and so on – have found that none of these finally satisfy or permanently wear –
to bring out from their torrid recesses, the affinity of a man or a woman with the open air, the trees, fields, the changes of seasons – the sun by day and the stars of heaven by night.”
I wonder what comes to your mind on reading this Walt Whitman quote?!
