I want to be outside more. I love nature: trees, sky, birds, and other critters. I love to feel the hot sun and a cool easterly breeze.
Being outside reminds me of being a child. I’m glad I grew up playing outside a lot. I think it would be fun to have an adult playground in my backyard. 🙂
But even sitting outside is refreshing. I feel less anxious; being inside for too long makes me feel like I’m missing out on the world. Being outside makes me feel more connected to it, that I am present in it along with other people. People from all over the world experience the same sun and moon. We can experience the effects of the same storm. We can understand the changing of the seasons.
There is peace outside, most especially in the quiter places, and even the busiest cities can contain glimpses of it.
