Getting down on the ground with Mother Nature is an experience.
Never mind the dirt, ticks, and bugs.
Oh yes, there's the greenish-yellowish crud that's filling my lungs.
And my eyes are itchy and red.
And getting up from the ground has more complications now, than ever before.
It takes longer.
But as long as I have the desire and strength, I'll keep on keepin' on!
Because, once I'm stretched 'flat-out' on the ground, the intricacies of nature come alive for me!
