Dear Body of Mine,
It’s been 100 days since you have really been in nature. It wasn’t really a hike so much as a careful walk down a hill, to the river, to sit while the family explored. Then a slow trudge past a pond, stopping to catch the breath. Until now you have stayed in the car with the window open, listening to the trees at the edge of woods. Sometimes even this was too big of an outing. Know that there will be more days of rest after this, but today celebrate that you have made it this far. Just be here.
