'springtime

Ah, but the winters! The earth’s mysterious
turning-within. Where around the dead
in the pure receding of sap,
boldness is gathered,
the boldness of future springtimes.
Where imagination occurs
beneath what is rigid; where all the green
worn thin by the vast summers
again turns into a new
insight and the mirror of intuition;
where the flowers’ color
wholly forgets that lingering of our eyes.
—  Rainer Maria Rilke, from ‘O Lacrimosa’

remember to walk barefoot every once in a while - personally that’s the thing I miss must about summer here in Scandinavia; walking barefoot all day long. Also, I am a big believer in Earthing (or grounding). Shorted down it is basically health and sunshine to your soul from the earth to your feet - amazing.
