“Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

I like to walk daily in the evening for an hour and it’s quite soothing to unwind the routine work of a day. During my walk, I let my senses experience something unique or different in nature i.e. an unknown fragrance from somewhere of an unknown flower, a butterfly that crosses my path, a cloud that has a unique shape.

Basho travelled a lot and shared his sense of uniqueness in nature through his poems.

moon and snow

seem to be ignoring each other

end of the year

-- Matsuo Basho

from the plum-scented air

suddenly the sun comes up

on the mountain road

-- Matsuo Basho

What do you notice when you go outdoors/outside? If not, please spare some time, take a walk, and let us know about your unique or different experience of the outer world.
