Sunlight, forests and oceans are gifts for living life, making human connection and exploring the vibrance of Earth’s beauty. I play and exercise outside whenever I can. It lifts my spirit and makes me feel connected to nature, family, friends. It boosts creativity, sparks joy and heals.
If I’m feeling down or tired, a hike in the woods, listening to the ocean or feeling the sun warm my skin does wonders. Playing in nature revives mind, energy, calms my being and brightens the day. Six words tell my truth.
Running through forest oxygen for soul.
Splash of puddles walking in rain.
Sunlight on skin in dancer’s pose.
Swimming cold seas makes skin tingle.
Sound of snow crunching beneath feet.
Climbing up mountains toughens me up.
Wind kisses cheeks as I pedal.
