34/52 Mossy Perch

"A portrait of my girls once a week, every week in 2014"
Elsa: before her first haircut, touching every bit of the Earth around her
Oona: sunshine and moss... what more does a child need?

Lately I've been trying a practice called "Earthing"  (something we all do from time to time)... simply put, it's walking barefoot on the Earth. I don't know if the science behind it is right, but it definitely feels good, especially when done mindfully... just like sitting in the sunshine for a few moments... stepping on the raw dirt or sand seems to energize you! Read a more detailed explanation about it here! I think I'm going to try lying out on the grass with the girls today for a little while if they'll sit still... perhaps the beginning of a simple meditation practice for them.
