When life ceases you with surprise and takes the wind out of your lungs, what do you do to find a break and open up your heart to let the necessary oxygen come to your rescue?
I put on my wellies and romp. and play. and explore.
Water, mud, snow, rain, fire— well, maybe not fire, but they’ve got my back in most situations.
They allow me to think only of my footsteps and the cycle of inhalation, and exhalation when that’s what I need most.
Freedom to breathe. Freedom to embrace my vulnerability and feel invincible.
