Friday photos and a few ramblings

Here are a few stories/links for you to check out and enjoy. Standing far below a roof of green pine needles, wisps of light wafting through said needles, the air warm and muggy around you, and the smell and crunch of pine straw beneath your feet. This is my idea of forest bathing and it… Read More
