Let’s go P.L.A.Y. in nature’s playground and restore our sense of calm through connection to the great outdoors and engaging in curiosity together.
These are some of the top “sense-sational” experiences I’ve had P.L.A.Y.ing in 2020:
*Hearing the buzzing bees while soaking up the warm sunshine on my skin and taking in the scent of summer in bloom in the butterfly garden.
*Listening to the babbling brook as it cascades down the rocky pathway.
*Hearing the birds singing an early morning wake-up call and the owl’s calling out to one another as dusk sets in to say goodnight.
*Watching the young goat kids, only a few months old, butting heads and frolicking about or cuddling one of these newborn cuties up close.
*Feeling the warm sunshine on my back as I P.L.A.Y.ed pick-up-sticks in early spring to create a brush pile.
*Seeing the ducks peeking out between the grasses in the meadow as they gobble up grubs.
*Watching the clouds sail by and a storm roll in.
*Tasting the delicious newly ripened apples in the orchard and the last fresh greens from the gardens.
*Feeling the cold on my lips while tasting the sweet local maple syrup on freshly fallen snow.
*Smelling the apple wood scented smoke outdoors on a winter’s eve from a nearby home burning a fire in a wood stove.
*Breathing in the crisp cold air while walking in the bright light and shadows created under a full moon on a winter’s night.
