I am so grateful to live in a beautiful natural playground where I get to play outdoors 3 seasons out of 4. :-) It could be 4 out of 4, but I don't ski, yet. For me, the sound of running water is very grounding and invigorating. I love taking a nature walk by the Deschutes, where not a lot of people go. The prana seems almost electric out here. It's as if I'm able to breathe in twice as much air with each inspiration.
