We took time to walk, notice, explore and breathe. We became more aware of the seasons, the weather, what was growing and emerging, the sounds emanating from the trees and hedgerows, the birds flitting by or soaring upwards on the thermals.
The gifts can be symbolic of our gratitude and thanks for what we have experienced or used in nature for the time we are there. You can leave dried herbs, ash from a fire, a small crystal or even your own saliva! I took with me a piece of jade that came from New Zealand many years ago to leave as a gift to the land of Patagonia when I visited back in 2019.
My invite to you is to give thanks and gratitude for the enjoyment you have had being out in nature and also leave behind a small gift as a way of giving back to nature.
