March 2020 – March 2022
I never anticipated that the borders between myself and my family would close.
I have not before seen it so busy in the forest-rich ridge where we live, people were walking, running and cycling, people return to the nature that they have so long neglected. But it is a natural and encouraging response.
The skies were glorious with so little pollution. I felt as though I could reach out and touch the moon. It is as if the earth began to breathe again. Time felt as if it slowed down. I felt the seasons keenly but it was a peaceful passing.
I also often turn to nature in times of need, I find it energetically recharging. Nature is persistent to exist and thrive. This is present in our veins, as is all of nature’s forces.
