“The knapsack of custom falls off his back with the first
step he makes into these precincts. Here we find nature to be the circumstance which dwarfs every other circumstance. How easily we might walk onward into the opening landscape, absorbed by new pictures. These enchantments are medicinal, they sober and heal us.”
This thought was written by Ralph Waldo Emerson, our greatest American philosopher and proponent of personal agency and a healthy life regimen, who took control of his life and flourished after years of disabling depression. People look to rehab for a new mode of life. Why not go to a tropical island, away from it all, to make this happen? You had better be serious though, as there is no easy way home!
