Q: What is your favorite spot or thing about nature?

Ryan Traynor, Editor-in-Chief: Sometimes I take nature for granted, as I go from class to class. Every now and then, though, something reminds me how miraculous it is – a thunder clap, a mirrored reflection in a drop of rain on a leaf, a flower just beginning to bloom. These moments stop me in my tracks and make me take a second to remember how small we are in the world, and yet connected to everything. Nature renews my spirit.

Allison Stein, Assistant Editor and Poetry Editor: Nature offers me a space to slow down in this fast-paced society. Suffocated by the clutter of thoughts and fears bombarding my mind, I too often forget to savor the serenity of the outdoors; within the realm of nature, however, I grasp an oasis where my imagination can breathe. The peace emanating from a sunrise or the rhythm reverberating from a creek sparks an unmatched joy within me, rekindles the curiosity time has evaporated. Immersed in the all-encompassing bliss of nature, I feel free.

Catherine Cheng, Amazing Kid of the Month Columnist and Editor: I love the smell of rain and the sound it makes when it hits glass. Whenever it rains, I can’t help but want to go outside and just let it seep into me. Rain is definitely what I find most inspiring about nature.

Sehen Gamhewa, Comic Hub Co-Editor: My favorite spot or thing about nature, I guess, is the fact that nature is just so ingenious. What I’m saying is, nature has so many creative, but practical methods that even us “sophisticated, advanced” humans fail to be able to replicate it, and stare at it, in awe.

Remmi Smith, Cook Nook Columnist: My favorite thing about nature is the sounds of running water, like a burbling brook or soft stream. It’s calming.
