nature's simplicity

Down to Earth Insider - Julie Stratton

One of my earliest memories is of a dark thunderstorm blowing inland and me running to put my toes in the resulting curb cascade amidst steamy sunshine afterwards. A few years later, a 7th grader made me a special music tape. Out in the Country by Three Dog Night headlined it. He said it was my song. Astonishingly, it still is. Today you'll find me yet still sticking my toes in the water, caressing tree bark and reveling in rocks.
