Reader comment on David Brooks's passage ...

I-It and I-Thou

 I-Thou moments are most precious with others (for me) when we sense, feel, think and imagine, collectively. These same moments occur for me more frequently however in the natural environment, when I am alone with nature. I can only imagine how our world would be today if we didn't consider the non-human, natural world as an 'It.'

 So well expressed. Describes how I feel in in nature. Definitely a I-Thou experience for me.
