Sight and Sound

When you spend a fair amount of time outdoors, sight and sound tend to be the overstimulated senses. It's a wonderful gift, sight and sound, we often overlook. We forget its natural beauty, the sights and sounds that can only be found via a walk in the woods. 

Need some help getting your senses prepped? Close your eyes and imagine the sound of falling water off in the distance. Continue on and then this source of sound, you discover it - the cascading flow of water tucked away in this hidden place. And if you didn’t hear the sound of water, the songs of birds, well, it’s an orchestra playing just for you. You can even hear the quiet of the woods; there’s a sound to that, too.
And for your eyes, this array of fascinating and wonderful plant life somehow occurs in these isolated places. With no human interface or fancy gadgets – it is this incredible cycle of natural growth taking shape.  Boy, I sure missed these last ten weeks of my walks in the woods.

As Helen Keller once said, “…it is a great pity that in the world of light the gift of sight is used only as a mere convenience rather than a means of adding fullness to life.” Nature is a clear path to opening your world to sight and sound. Father’s Day weekend is a great time for a spring walk in the woods with Dad.
