Returning to Nature

Bare feet on Kentucky Grass is one of the ways I get back to nature in the midst of the concrete jungle I live in. Yes, you can find Kentucky Grass in NYC if you look!

The feeling I get when I put my bare feet in the grass is a feeling that words cannot describe. I could say it feels nice but that’s an understatement.

When we get back to nature I feel we get back to our true selves. Not the people others want us to be, not the ones we imagined ourselves to be, just us, the perfect beings that we are. It’s the thinking that we humans do that makes the world an imperfect place. Nature is our equalizer.
