Embrace the Mother Nature

It’s so enjoyable to visit Filoli Estate –one of the finest country estates of the early 20th century. It’s located in Woodside, CA, Filoli was built for Mr. and Mrs. William Bowers Bourn, prominent San Franciscans whose chief source of wealth was the Empire Mine, a hard-rock gold mine in Grass Valley, California.

Filoli, the estate’s name reflects Mr. Bowers’ credo: “Fight for a just cause; Love your fellow man; Live a good life.”, Mr. Bowers’ success story is the legendary American dream in last century.

We’ve just been through the one of the toughest recession time in our life, economically many of us feel suffering, but when we take some time to embrace the mother nature, breathe the fresh air, smell the flowers, we feel refreshed, relieved and rejuvenated.

In the emerging economies such as China and India, fast-growing economic engine leapfrog the new generation of wealthy white-class families with great purchasing power, but even their life are not perfect. Each time before I travel back, when I call my sister for any gift she like, her answer is wise somehow: “ we can get anything in Shang Hai now, if you have to bring, just bring us a bottle of fresh air or a bunch of California Sunshine!”

Mother Nature is the precious gift we could ever have, in developing world, the fast growing economy should be built on improved productivity with respect of mother nature;

In developed world, the latest technology such as clean tech and solar are more directly touch the earth, refine and shine the mother nature, and they bring up the best hope to the next economy booming

Thank you for volunteering father and daughter tour guide Lowell and Jeanne to present us the best Filoli with enriched natural education knowledge. And thanks Nimitz to invite me!
