Jennie.....thank you for reading my article.
Teenagers seem to like a noisy, busy lifestyle. When I was young there was not so much technology and my friends were not all close by. I played with my brother and sister outside. I had friends in my neighborhood too and when we saw each other it was usually to engage in activities outside, or we just sat around out there and talked. I was not in the house during nice weather.
I enjoyed quiet time out in nature even back then. I walked around the yard and studied the plants, flowers, insects, etc. I cared for the rosebushes and they flourished. I'd spread out an old comforter on the ground in the shade, lay down on it, and look up at the sky. I'd look at the clouds and watch the birds fly by. Sometimes I even took a nap there.
I was very in tune with nature and my inner being. I found nature to be very comforting and like my friend. It made me who I am today.
