A short one today, I’ve been working all day and am heading out to an evening meeting. This meant that my act of random wildness needed to be fitted in to my lunchtime. On my way between two offices, I stopped in at Braywick Park, headed down into The Dell, and once I’d finished my sandwich, spent a little while meditating.
It was wonderful to meditate outdoors, eyes closed, listening to the sounds of nature around me. The breeze gently rustled the leaves and blew across my face. The grass was cool and smooth under my bare feet. Birds sang all around me, a chiff chaff and a whole variety of other bird calls. When I opened my eyes I felt relaxed and tuned in to my surroundings.
Before continuing with my day I gazed into the pond, fringed with yellow flag irises and red campion. Tadpoles swam beneath the surface, banded demoiselles flitted around and a red damselfly landed on a nettle.
I took time to appreciate this amazing London Plane tree and picked up a seed for my nature table.
I really appreciate wild moments outside at lunchtime, I’ll definitely be trying to incorporate a wild lunch at least once a week, beyond the 30 days wild challenge.
