I'm thankful for the natural world, and the fact that we get to experience it as beautiful. There's no evolutionary reason that we have to find nature beautiful, but we do anyway. I've read that there have even been times in history when people really didn't find beauty in the natural world, which ... what a loss. I love nature's small beauties like a bunny on a grassy lawn, or a bee wiggling its furry way into a flower. And I of course love nature's grandest vistas, those vast expanses that make me feel so satisfyingly small and insignificant.
