Being outside. In the open air. Surrounded by nature. It’s a healing salve. It’s where we unwind. It eases our minds. Gives us spaciousness. Reminds us that life is constantly changing and transforming. That life renews even when forced to go dormant for a while. There is so much that nature can offer us and teach us in these uncertain times. It is needed and necessary and yet we have to engage with it and each other differently right now.
