Marvin and his love of nature

I think a part of Marvin really loved and adored the sight of nature. I know when Janis was interviewed about the beginnings of Marvin's exile that Marvin enjoyed vacating at the Hawaiian beaches because it gave him some peace and serenity that he couldn't find while living in Los Angeles. I often wonder because of Marvin's love for Europe in the '80s would he had been living in some other European country besides from Belgium. Prince, in his latest record, talks about wanting to go to "the vineyards of Lavaux". Lavaux is actually located in Switzerland. I wonder if Marvin would've enjoyed living outside those vineyards and breathing some fresh air all the while inspired to do music. Nature inspired MJ and Prince, I'm sure it inspired Marvin as well. I think the Midnight Love album indicated that love.
