Especialy tending to things in nature, things that grow. My Grandpa Harvey liked to refer to himself as a "Son of the Soil" he also claims that growing his own vegitables has kept him alive and strong well into his 90's. He said "out of the dust of the earth you were made, into the dust of the earth you shall return" He says mother nature is a formula that you cannot change and all the trace elements of the earth are required to nurish you. He also said there is no better exercise than hard work."Those that work the soil are truly Gods chosen people" Thomas Jefferson

A few months ago, I'd read a brief news snipped in some newspaper
about a "Soil Study" or a comprehensive "Study Of Soil" which
produced results which basically said that those who deal with soil
on a regular basis, such as gardeners, have physical & chemical
characteristics similar, if not identical, to persons who have
practiced Meditation on a regular basis...
Has anyone read this article, or anything of that nature ? Now that
I'm trying to find it again OnLine, I'm hitting a huge abyss of
fragmented WebSites which aren't the exact news item I'd seen a few
I'd greatly welcome any ideas, or even if anyone has heard of this so-
Thanks a million !!
