Hiking is a new love. I began hiking just last year with my husband. We love exploring untouched parcels of land, places where trees are taller than buildings and deer are startled to see you. It’s lovely to reconnect with the earth, to place my palms on trees older than anyone I know, to identify birds by their calls. I love seeing young animals; this year, I’ve seen goslings, ducklings, baby squirrels, fawns, and baby birds. In the past, I’ve seen baby skunks, rabbits, and raccoons. I love chasing dragonflies and smelling pine needles. I love feeling whole.
