WPC [Depth]: When time stood still…

Only after the last tree has been cut down

Only after the last river has been poisoned

Only after the last fish has been caught

Only then you will find that money cannot be eaten

—An old Cree Indian saying— 

 

Living in a place where we see nothing but concrete jungle, the picturesque calmness found in nature never fail to take my breath away. I remember thinking how simple and unmaterialistic life is for the dwellers in this rural area in Bali as I stood at the foot of the vast padi fields.

In the tranquility of the moment, I found myself lost in the depth of the landscape and the horizon before me. Time had stood still. My hair blew in the wind and my mind laid idle…loss for words as I found myself mesmerised at the depth of beauty created by nature.

  1. I love this. I live in a concrete jungle too and find that it’s so easy for people to feel disconnected from nature and therefore think nothing of how their lifestyle is slowly breaking it down. People who live in beautiful places like this actually value our planet. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
