It is the Earth who feeds us and gives us our lives. By making physical contact with her, we are renewed - physically, mentally, and spiritually. Most folks spend their lives moving from house to car to office and back again without ever actually touching the earth. We wear shoes which keep us separate from her and our houses are no longer made of materials which allow us to sense the living breathing world of which we are a part. By taking time to consciously reconnect our individual bodies with the infinitely larger body of Earth, we are reminded time and time again that we are not alone, not even close — but that we are simply a single thread in the wondrous weaving of the whole wide world.
