Ah, trees, lots of them providing so much space to everyone in, the oasis called Central Park truly how does it get any better? I love how you can find so much solitude even on a densely populated place like Manhattan. So many parks are spread all over the city and then there’s the High Line that offers beautiful views, nature and architectural masterpieces blending old with new and amazing city views. New York City in the summer is an amazing oasis of greenery.

Today I’m grateful for all of the trees, the breathing space and the calming effect they have on me.

How about you? What does trees and nature contribute to you? Do you go to parks or do you live in the midst of nature? When was the last time you sat by, touched or hugged a tree?
