In winter,
breathe in the cold,
and let the rain shower and cleanse your soul. 
In summer,
bathe in the warmth,
and let the light pool and cleanse your soul.
That is nature:
to be alone, but not feel lonely. 
The protea symbolizes courage.
Today, I want you to be courageous, and venture into the nature.
You need not breathe, you need not feel; simply let your grief
connect you to the wise and solemn nature.
