self-healing & walks in nature

in Amazing Nature2 years ago

This park is a famous hangout for squirrels, it seems.

This morning, I woke up early and went on a walk through the park.

Plagued by curiosity, I wondered what I would find.

After stumbling on a cute mushroom patch, I set out on a quest to find as many as I could!

Cute, um, "mushrooms."

My favorite out of all! A shroom, existing.

I found these mushrooms almost hidden in a small cavity in the ground.

While out on this mini-hunt, I was reminded just how invigorating walking through nature can be, particularly in the morning.

It's hard to explain;
the fresh, crisp air,
the myriad of different plants & trees,
the different critters, each on their own path, undisturbed.

After this walk I felt a new sense of purpose. Not an existential awakening. Just - to explain it simply - it's as if some core understanding was bestowed to me.

Looks like I'll be making morning walks my new habit.


Yes, Thoreau. We need this. This period’s been an awakening for me too. Needless are the hours behind a device while, while all too essential are the moments outside, immersed in your environment. Glad you enjoyed your walk. nbs
