    No Work; More Out Doors.

    I lived my entire life out doors and now I'm inside working all the time. I feel so empty; like somthing in me has died. Yesterday I walked in the forest and did a little herb seeking. Nature needs us to save her and I need Mother nature to save me from life inside.
