Going into Nature - A Lesson of Interdependence

There is Interdependence between us all, we need each other to move forward

About a week back, Zoe suggested photos we took from our surrounding that tells a story that we can all resonate with.

This picture was taken a few weeks back at nature conservation centre in Lagos.
Apart from the trees looking green and healthy, they provide a balance in the environment by removing carbon dioxide (which we exhale) and releasing clean oxygen which we breathe in.

I think this picture tells a story of interdependence and how it truly helps to foster development and progress; it also proves the point that nature never wastes anything.

Green Message

It is nice to have you back Vweta!

You wowed me with your very GREEN picture and message. It's inspiring to see the Green side of YOU, revealed!

Please permit me to add this very important point to the list of what trees do- 'Trees boost crop yields and food security'. We need trees, so we must have the will protect them!

Thank you so much for sharing such an inspirational message about the the Nature Conservation Centre, Lagos.

It So Good To Be Back Greengirl!

Well... what can i say? Am truly honoured Greengirl.
I love nature and try to spend as much time as possible in nature. Its a shame we have just one natural reserve in Lagos - The Lekki Conservation Centre.

Thank you for reading this.

Dear Vweta,

Your picture illustrates so well the sustainability of nature and how this planet was created to empower us all. Your strength as you go through difficult time and the network of sisters we have found on World Pulse, very much echoes the sustainability of Nature. We have around us all that we need!
Thanks for the picture.

Thank You, Vweta

Dear Vweta,

Thank you for the lovely photo and for your organic -- naturally unfolding -- insights about the natural world. I always feel a wave of gladness when I read the words of someone who has a deep appreciation for nature, sometimes so gentle, sometimes so fierce.

All The Best,

Sarah

Dear Sarah

Thank you too... I find nature very - 'Mothering' and i believe there's so much we can learn by simply observing and being witnesses of everything natural.

Love & Light,

Every breath you take

To me, I read between your lines the symbolism inherent in the breath of the trees - you too are exhaling the carbon and inhaling the oxygen as only you can do, Vweta. It's the breath of life.

Creatively,
Stacey
