And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~ Kahlil Gibran

I gotta say, it almost works for me. Could exposure to dirt be a cure for depression? I don't approve of the little mouse experiment, but how else can you explain that I always feel better after playing in that giant sandbox I call a garden? Is it possible that there is a scientific basis for my addiction to digging in the dirt?

These are the things that make me say HMMMMM.

Interesting! Of course our grandparents would say that it's because we're outdoors, in nature, planting things with our own hands & watching them grow. *grin* Who cares what the precise reason is, if it makes you feel better?

Ahh, but if one knows WHAT causes one to feel better, cannot one then replicate the situation more consistently?


Actually, I agree with you...Who cares why? It works!
