Melina Watts: Our Emotional Connection to Nature (ep16)
“I know that when I go outside and take a walk I feel emotionally connected to plants, animals, the dirt, the landcape, the sky, the water. That’s very emotional. And I feel like if I allow that to be as real as a proof as it is for me and informed the choices I make in my life.”
– Melina Watts
