I love the outdoors! Even as a child I spend hours and hours by myself playing in Surface Creek, which ran behind our my parents home. I enjoyed the freedom of riding my bike between our and my grandparent’s house. Walking through the cherry orchard, or the apple orchard looking for bird nests, or just laying in the irrigation ditches looking up at the sky, watching the clouds come and go.
Today we would say: “Becoming one with nature.” Back then I was just ‘being’.
