Into the woods

On these hot days, I feel some relief recalling the smell of wet grounds, springy fallen leafs, sunny or shady mushrooms, dark roads (too much for my camera!), the dancing waters that are always playing hide and seek…

Recalling those trips into the woods, where kids can play with Nature on a normal way –are there better toys than sand, water, mud, branches? And where we can fill up our tanks of patience and listen to them, calmly, to catch the words they say aloud and the ones they think silently (so we must read in their minds)… And a lot more things, of course!
