Sitting by the waterfall, surrounded by flowers, grasses, insects, birds, and Oliver, I felt like I was slowly made whole again. Whenever I am lost, I need only look around and I can find myself. For I am one with it all.
There is no me without the air. The air is a part of me, in my lungs and in my blood cells. There is no me without the water. My body is made of at least 50 percent water - I am water and water is me. There is no water without rain, or clouds, or sunshine or transpiration and evaporation. I rely on the sun and the rain to live, they are a part of me. There is no me without plant life - I need plant life to sustain myself, and so do the other animals on which I depend. There would be no me without the people I love - my family and friends. They have given me life, culture, wisdom and experience. I depend on all these things for my life. My life is a miracle of inter-being.
