Simple Pleasure of the Week: the great outdoors
I'm among those who believe we are meant to be at one with nature. We evolved co-existing with the great outdoors, completely reliant on all that it has to offer for us (food, shelter). Just as children naturally love their parents, so are we created to love nature. I instantly feel calmer, a little more grounded when I'm surrounded by the great outdoors, smells of meadow grass or pine trees, the sound of oceans waves or birds chirping. Enjoying nature is such a simple pleasure because it costs no money and fulfills a primitive longing. Happy Weekend!
