Words to live by. My favorite author, Henry David Thoreau spent most of his life outdoors it seems. He writes with such passion about nature and the refreshment it provides. I have been so cooped up in the studio lately...trying to accomplish so many things. I forget to go out and experience the world with all my senses. I went for a walk in the meadow yesterday afternoon after the rain stopped. I heard the brook rushing, saw the moon rising and the sun setting. I felt so much better, and vowed to do it more often. Go outside and play.
