On certain Sundays, my brother likes to go to the Everglades to take pictures of wildlife. He invites us sometimes and in spite of my laziness, I feel that I have to go, that little trips like this are good for the soul.
The Everglades is quite a magical place. At this time of the year the skies are pure blue and the sound of the silence that pervades the atmosphere is only interrupted by birds chirping or wading in the river or by other reptiles suddenly emerging from the water in a sudden frenzy.
Breathing deeply and inhaling the air here brings nothing but the feeling of wholesomeness inside your body. Being so deeply submerged in nature is not usual for me. Moments like this make me understand the reasons why it so important to preserve these sanctuaries – nature is not here by accident, it was created for all to share, enjoy, revel in and seek solace from all the noise and chaos of everyday life.
After this mystical experience we usually visit Robert Is Here. We stock up on tropical fruits, coconuts, vegetables and herbs. Then back home it is – rejuvenated, refreshed and hungry.
