“Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.” –Elizabeth Lawrence
Last week my parents came to visit us in London. It was also my birthday. I haven’t spent a birthday with my parents in, oh, 10 years or so … so it was wonderful.
We managed to escape London for a couple of days to walk around the English countryside.
And wow, it’s autumn.
Sometimes I feel so disconnected living in the city, working in an office, commuting in the train. Beyond noticing if I need an umbrella that day or not, I have no idea what is happening outside.
Last week reminded me how important it is to get outside everyday and reconnect with the world, if only for a few minutes!
How do you find the time to reconnect with nature? Do you feel different on days you’re inside or outside? How do you stay balanced?
