I have always gravitated towards nature…walking in woods, climbing tree’s and watching animals pass below, walking on beaches or in rivers, with bare feet in cool water. I lost touch with my need for that for far too long while living in the city, raising children, and working so much. I recently moved though, and am back living close to nature. I can look out my window while working, and see nature and a river, and it calms my soul. It grounds me, as nothing else can.
