    nature source of comfort

    Hello.

    Is it correct and natural to say nature is a source of comfort and inspiration for someone?

    Is this sentence okay?

    Nature has always been a source of comfort and inspiration for me.

    Re: nature source of comfort

    I think someone answered it when it was back in Ask a Teacher section, no?

    Do you mean that you think it was answered and then, when the post was moved, the answer vanished?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Maybe not. So, what is the answer? Is the sentence okay?

    That one has just been closed to avoid confusion! The only post left in that thread was one response. The original question had gone (to this section).

    Re: nature source of comfort

    I kind of sensed someone had already answered this question.

    When someone posts an answer in my threads, it is a big deal for me and believe me when I say this, I sometimes experience a spark of excitement.

    So it stays in my brain that someone answered my question.

    It's somewhat vague. Are you comforted and inspired at the same time?
    Not a professional teacher
