When was the last time you strolled through the woods?
When was the last time you lay down in the grass and looked up, watching the clouds sail on by?
Went on a picnic? Or watched the birds sail from tree to tree?
Or listened to the crickets sing as the wind russles through the leaves?
Or been outside on a cold day, smelling the fresh air?
Or smelled the smoke of a distant oak wood fire?
Or you came inside, feeling the warmth, smelling a fresh baked apple pie?
Or smelled the perfume of your own true love?
Sit down in a field and wake up to the wonders around you. Expand.
