Exploring With Moxie
“Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.”
- Henry David Thoreau
Out in the woods, walking my dog Moxie. Looking around at all the green. The green trees, mossy rocks with the morning dew, covering it all. The more you go outside and just explore outside, the happier you will be. The more you just spend time with just you and your dog. The mist covering the ground, making my shoes wet. The green leaves flowing in the wind. On walks with my dog, I like to reflect on things I have done in my past. I like to think about my baseball games that I had this weekend, and how we had won both of our games this weekend. I thought about how lucky I was to be able to go to the Red Sox game with my friends. I think about who lucky I am to just be able to be on this walk right now. As we reach the end of the path, we are forced to turn around and come back. On the way back, I am following Moxie, as she goes down to the stream to explore. As Moxie runs around, I just sit down and look at the stream. I see the sun light reflect on the river, the tiny fish swimming up and down the stream. I sit their and just think, how lucky am I.
