The Meadow and the Forest; with Lupins, Hawks and Chestnuts

All it takes is an afternoon in a little bit of nature to rebalance and ground. Walking on a mossy fallen tree in the high grass. Crouching in a patch of lupines to be surrounded by the hum of busy bees. Watching a dance of light on a broad blur dock leaf, spotting a hawk way up in the trees.
It isn’t even all the beautiful things to look at; what did it for me was the feel and sound of the wind through the grass and trees and the fresh, fresh air.
For the rest of the day and night, I felt simultaneously light and grounded, with a clear mind.
