One of the small pleasures I have in this time of uncertainty is to take a walk in nature. This is not the case in many countries at time moment and I think this freedom can be revoked at any time. But until then, I will take the necessary precautions, stay in spaces that aren’t full of people and keep 1,5m distance from others.
The forest walk was a good as it sounds. It is good for the body and soul to connect with nature, take in the trees and sky and everything in between. It reminds me that we are part of a bigger story. Hundreds of years ago people also walked through the forest and hopefully they will do so in years to come. The same trees will be there, or their descendents,changing with the seasons in an eternal cycle of growth and rest. Life and decay.
In years to come we will look back at this time and only time will tell if we used it for growth or decay.
Until then, I will enjoy the spring in Europe with all the fresh flowers it has to offer
