I've been thinking about this all day, since I first read and then replied to this thread and after reading the subsequent posts I wanted to add another thought.
I moved from England to Spain and love the mountains here but I really miss the old trees and the woodland areas of England. The mountains look
beautiful but they don't resonate with me like trees so I certainly think there is some sort of connection with plant life. Maybe for some people
they resonate more with other aspects of nature, such as the mountains? I also love listening to the sea but inland water areas make me uneasy.
I know that may seem to be going off in a different direction but I thought it might make a difference if some of us feel more 'at home' with
different aspects of nature. eg. some of us hear/feel plant life and maybe others get something from water, mountains, etc? It might explain why
some of us sincerely believe we can talk to plant life and other people think we're completely off our rocker!
