I’ve just returned from a 3-day trip to one of our beautiful provincial parks and I’m still smiling.
Surrounded by hundreds of people, I saw families with tiny toddlers squealing with delight or frustration and teenagers racing around on their bikes, mid-life couples and groups of friends gathered around campfires, and older folks taking an evening stroll along the pathways through the camp.
I was struck by our presence in the woods and the way we created a village, the way the sounds and smells of our everyday lives unfolded against a backdrop of unending green. I love the sensation of living with the earth and the elements and it was wonderful to see so many others enjoying the space. It’s in the woods that I can take that full deep breath my body and soul longs for, and it is so delicious to draw it in.
