When We Can't Embrace Each Other
Okay… Well, I want to do something while I’m out here!
We have a plethora of suggestions for that, too.
Start with taking a short walk.
You can pay tribute to, or honor, someone special to you with a gift that will last for generations to come. We will send a card, as appropriate, to convey your appreciation…
Start a nature journal!
Take it on your walk and find somewhere to sit and make observations—maybe there is a rock that faces a creek, or a patch of plants just pushing through the soil. Look around and take note of everything you observe, hear and smell.
Next Level: hone in on a specific item. Perhaps there is a tree that is just getting its spring buds.
What do the buds look like? How quickly do they grow – is it a weekly change, daily, hourly? What sort of insects and animals like this tree? What kind of moss, lichen or fungus is growing on it?
Take an extra-long walk…
And bring your furry pal along! What new places can you find by spending an extra ten minutes walking?
Next Level: challenge yourself to walk further. Pick a distance (maybe you walk half a mile each day) and see if you can go a little further, then a little further.
How does the extra distance feel? Have you discovered a new neighborhood? Maybe a small street you hadn’t seen before, or a cool new spot along your favorite trail?
