There are no words to explain what this photo means to me. It represents so many things.
It was an opportunity I took to give myself some breathing room, to inhale some of the soothing, healing scents of nature, to enjoy the complex worlds of interconnectedness of which I am a small part and to relax into a feeling of being understood and cared for. Not just on a concrete personal level by friends who love me, but on a more mystical plane where I was able to relish all the rich and wonderful ways in which I am a part of the natural world.
Talk about sensory overload.
