"I hold a dream an' there's no compromisin'. I know there's one certain laddie for me. One day he'll come walkin' o'er the horizon. But should he not, then an old maid I'll be...Waitin' for my dearie, an' happy am I to hold my heart till he comes strollin' by. When he comes, my dearie, one look an' I'll know that he's the dearie I've been wantin' so...For ye see, I believe that there's a laddie weary and wanderin' free who's waitin' for his dearie, me." ~ 'Waitin' For My Dearie' from Brigadoon
“Shinrin-yoku” is a Japanese term that translates as “forest bathing” and describes immersing oneself in a forest environment in order to experience the healing effects of Mother Nature at her best. It is believed that the trees themselves emit natural aromatherapeutic benefits from the essential oils in the woods that are inhaled over an extended period, causing an actual "magic in the air."
