Last Sunday with the volunteer association GEA Granada and a couple of friends we did some reforesting in the foothills of Granada. What is it about fresh air and helping the planet that lifts one's spirit so high? We had a picnic in Llano de la Perdiz after we had finished, listening to the birds and watching the clouds; a total soul cleanse. The experience made me wonder, why is it so difficult for us as a society to make the health of our planet a priority? Why do we continue using plastic for everything, throwing our garbage out the car window, driving instead of riding a bicycle, poisoning our earth and ourselves with pesticides instead of eating organic foods? Mother Nature gives us so much, it´s time we all started giving back.
