“Set me a task in which I can put something of my very self,
and it is a task no longer;
it is joy; it is art.” Bliss Carman
We went for a walk together in the woods–all her idea–and then I found a paper in her backpack from the field trip she took to a local wildlife sanctuary.
What did I hear?
“I could hear water, the crunching leaves, and birds chirping.”
What did I see?
“I saw, trees, and a squirl, and deer poop, and pine cones, and birds, and vernal pools.
We found a bone so we slipped it on her “adventure stick.”
What did I smell?
“I could smell skunk cabbage, and a fresh nature smell.”
How did I feel?
“I felt rain, and the cool air, and the cruching leaves under my feet.”
