Day 109: Solo Time in Nature

When I was younger, one of my favorite soothing activities was to go off in nature by myself. Sometimes that involved staring up at the clouds through the trees, feeling the grass prickle my back as I recoiled. Other times, like in college, it meant going off to sit and stare at the ocean, with no one else around. Today, I needed a moment to reset. On my 4 mile walk/jog I paused to listen to the birds, crunch a piece of grass between my fingers, feel the wind on my face.

Pausing in nature brings me closer to wonder.

I couldn’t get too close, but this little strip of trees by the baseball fields did the job. 🙂
