Walk through a forest and see branches silhouetted against a blue sunlit sky. Jump from bog to bog, smelling the musty watery earth below. Meander through a meadow and hear the Red-tailed one’s cry. Touch the Spruce, Hemlock, Cedar and Pine…feel the energy flow. Taste all the offerings of Nature, fore which God to us bestow.
Get closer to Nature. Do not distance your relationship with something that you are a part of. Stay as intimate as possible, for as long as possible and fully enjoy those soulful moments, that become etched in our memories. It is those memories that will make life somewhat tolerable, when you are no longer able to go deep into the wilds.
