Biophilia (noun)
biophilia [bahy-oh-fil-ee-uh, ‐feel-yuh]

1. a love of life and the living world; the affinity of human beings for other life forms.

Origin: 1960-65; < New Latin “love of life” from bio- + -philia; coined by Erich Fromm in The Heart of Man: Its Genius for Good and Evil (1964) to mean “love for humanity and nature, and independence and freedom”; extended by Edward O. Wilson in Biophilia (1984) to mean “the rich, natural pleasure that comes from being surrounded by living organisms.”

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
