One of the great things that will come out of this coronavirus isolation period (and I guarantee there will be many things that people will come to really appreciate) is that people will be much more connected to nature.
It’s all there is really. Walking, exercising. It’s the one saving grace.
And it’s become ours too.
I think we’ll all realise just how simple and beautiful our lives can be, by just going outside. By going back to nature, enjoying the free and natural parts of life, that are all accessible just by stepping out the front door.
I’ve come to really rely on our end of day walks. And the photo I snapped above?
That part of the walk is my favourite.
Because there’s a house off the path there somewhere, with a real fireplace. And the smell of firewood burning as we walk past…
It smells amazing.
It makes me feel like we’re on holiday.
It makes me feel the way we used to feel, back when we lived on the other side of town, and would travel down here, to our now sea change house, back then our getaway sea change destination of choice… (PHEW).
And I love it. I love feeling like we’re away, if only a moment, especially when we can’t go further than out our front door, or at the very most, around the block.
And isn’t that amazing? How nature can make us feel? ♥♥♥
