The earliest memory I have of being in nature is that of me picking up flowers with my mom from a field behind a sports’ center near our home.
The purple-white flowers would cover a huge area and, would always bloom in late April. I remember how I wanted to pick them all, even though it was so damn hot, that I’d return home with my T-shirt drenched in sweat.
Nowadays, I live in Finland and am lucky enough to be surrounded by forests and lakes that take away from the stress and the boredom of living. I only started to experience that kind of peacefulness from being in nature when I came here.
