We all know that for many, Nature Moments are like rehab for the stressed-out soul.
I want to acknowledge the pre-hab qualities --the happy brain chemistry that Nature gifts us because (turns out) that symbiotic relationship that happens when we hang out in the types of atmospheres that we are designed to be in results in better care: Nature cares for us in this way and we, in turn, naturally care for it more and are generally less hot-headed reactive when we head out into the world where everyone, including me, is throwing out our own perceptions of everything at everyone to bob and weave through as unscathed as possible.
I also feel a certain "calm excitedness", like more fuel/energy in the tank to do all of the above and to more clearly see the things I believe are most meaningful and important and to keep getting busy with them.
All this and more in a Nature Moment near you.
Like with last evening's first humongous salsify clock sighting, first yellow fennel flowers blooming and Poppy's obvious and contagious interest and enthusiasm out there.
Pre-hab Nature Moment PSA: if not for anyone else but me.
