My friend Miss Polly sent me a thoughtful card with a lovely illustration of a little girl on a swing, her legs extended as if to pump back-and-forth to make the swing go higher and higher. The caption was a single and simple phrase – to discover her generous nature.

This sweet image reminded of the delightful times when I am my truest self, playful and lighthearted. Much of life, it seems to me, is about discovering our nature. In a way that makes perfect sense, that discovery often happens in nature – walking through the forest, wading at the water’s edge, picking apples in the orchard, or gazing at the stars of the summer sky.
