    I got lost cataloging the forest the other day
    And missed the LIFE all around me


    Then, I sat down by a tree
    And instead of inventorying
    The species of every plant around me
    I closed my eyes
    Took a deep and relaxing breaths
    And LIFE overwhelmed me


    Now, when I walk in the forest
    I don’t so much feel the need to
    Catalog every flower, tree, and squirrel


    Inventorying the forest
    Doesn’t give one knowledge of
    LIFE in the forest….

    I like what you're saying here. I can be like that with people too.
