A few days ago, early morning, I was out on the balcony. Naked, because the temperature was surprisingly gentle for a February morning so I took advantage of it.
There is something amazing, wonderful, soothing to be out there, hearing blackbirds call out (yes, they are early this year) and hardly hearing anything else out there.
I even was blessed with the absence of cars while I stood there and took in nature from where I was. It was still dark. That helped me to imagine I was out in nature, surrounded by trees, grass, lakes, anything non-human.
Sometimes I need that. To be all alone, away from the madness of humanity, mingling with the feel of nature itself.
That is a big part of nature-ism for me. Nothing on me, no one around me. I just want to take in the healing feeling of what nature has to offer, and enjoy that as much as I can.
It doesn’t take much to enjoy that, for me. I know many people have difficulties with that, though. They are so much into the stress and haste and hurry of life that they forget to stop and really ‘feel’.
I pity those people.
Calm down. Undress. Unstress.
