Nature quotes from my favorite poets and photos by my favorite nature people, Gopal and her family! It looks like it's her little daughter's, Avani's hands in most of the pics. Gopal sent me these photos for our movie project but they came too late to be included. They're so beautiful I wanted to share them anyway! Thank you Gopal & fam!
I'm in Tennessee right now, getting ready for Bonnaroo music festival so I will not be able to go online for over a week. Lots of bare feet touching nature will be taking place, as well as super hot Tennessee sun touching my poor Scandinavian skin ;)
In Finland I had some really nice moments in the nature, just walking in the forest and getting my head very clear, nature does that to you. I need to take the time to do that more often. If you have any nature memories, inspirations, quotes, or photos to share, I'd love to hear from you in the comments! Let's touch her more!
