For me, nature is what allows me to:
feel the beauty of the world, receive inspiration to create art works – poems and so on, and to touch eternity. Nature was before us and will stay after us…
It may be that Nature is a language God is speaking with us (see”Diary” by Al. Shmeman )
I love to see the sky, the sea, prairie and forest but the most beautiful I have seen were the Tien-Shan mountains on the border between former USSR and China where I spent three seasons working on a glaciological expedition.
