So, I experimented. I arrived at the eye doctors a little ahead of time. The day was beautiful and warm ... the perfect spring day the poets all swoon over. There was a small park close by. Instead of sitting in the waiting room, I headed to the park. I walked among the soft grass, blossoming flowers, and leafing trees. I explored a raised boardwalk through a small woods. I enjoyed the sunlight and shadow. I was kind to myself, giving myself a refreshing taste of nature before returning to the doctor's office and then my own. I was uplifted and relaxed.
Thanks, kids, for showing me something truly important.
