When something leaves you breathless

Whenever that happens to me, I escape to the park. Or if time is short I go down to my small yard where the green things are. The little self-seeded, self-sporing plants, mainly ferns, breathe towards me - and I towards them, a life-supporting exchange of gases that science seems finally to be discovering, and valuing, anew. You can read about it in the aptly named Nature Communications.
