With time, appreciating nature itself, its beauty, its workings, while enthralling, is still not enough, not the biggest picture. What is amazing is that we can be “amazed” at it. But being amazed at something implies being separated from it. We are from another place. This realization of beauty makes us aware of this other place. We are thankful but still separated. For a moment we share with beauty this other place, but then it is gone. We have to move on. We are left with a longing.
