Fear is stupid.

Why are we all so afraid of the outdoors? We are human! We are programmed to perch. To enjoy the view. Views are freedom from predation. In modern terms, they are sanctuary. We create sanctuary in our homes, but often neglect the beauty, the simplicity, the organic Zen of our own outdoor spaces. Fresh air. Clean mind. Cocktails on the porch! (In this case, the “porch” is Donna Karan’s “Urban Zen”, but we can all take a lesson from her book…)
