Feeding the body is a necessary task — and engaging the journey of feeding it right and mindfully has woven its way into many of my Down on the Farm articles. But feeding the soul is equally important in our lives.
Being in nature is a wonderful and readily accessed way to feed the soul here in the Northwoods. There’s lakes and rivers and trails, all waiting to be explored. Every morning, I take time to notice something special happening in nature during chore time, whether it’s the Great Blue Heron silently pumping its wings over the tops of the trees, the apple branches bursting forth with pale pink blossoms, or the humble toad hopping across my path.
