To say there’s no divisiveness in nature is obvious, but it bears repeating: There’s no divisiveness in the nature.
Trees don’t hurl insults at the rapids, and animals don’t ostracize because another disagrees with them on healthcare. It’s awesome.
Escaping from politics (especially the constant bombardment of political advertisements) makes you wish even more for the end of the 2012 campaign cycle. While in the forest, I never thought of taxes, Obama or Romney. My thoughts were limited to the immediate awesomeness of my surroundings. Rather than returning to the nonstop campaigning, I’d much rather stay in the forest.
Instead, I had to get back in the car and return home. And almost immediately, I began hearing ads about Romney and his 47 percent remark (driving through North Carolina) and how Obama hates the coal industry (driving through West Virginia).
Oh, how I miss the forest.
