"Surrending"

“When Nature falls upon herself, beware” Emily Dickinson Humans, as rational creatures have been pushing boundaries through technology for ages, applied to medicine, agriculture, transport, communication and lots of other human related fields. This has lead to great improvements in quality of life, but sometimes human ego has gone beyond limits, resulting in resistant microorganisms, environmental disasters, and even world pandemics with all the known economical consequences. I fear this human detachment from Nature and irresponsability will lead to a more broken society because we need Nature, Nature doesn't need us. Staying connected to Nature gives us important perspectives on sanity and priorities. If Nature falls, humans fall also.
