The 5-week old chicks went outside for the first time on Saturday. They loved the grass, the dirt, the bugs, the sun, and the breeze. I can only imagine what if felt like for them – to be outside in nature for the first time in their lives.
As you sit on the hillside, or lie prone under the trees of the forest, or sprawl wet-legged by a mountain stream, the great door, that does not look like a door, opens. ~ Stephen Graham, The Gentle Art of Tramping
