I returned from camping for 5 nights at a festival yesterday. And although I can’t say I enjoyed the constant noise, stimulation and swarms of people of the festival, sleeping on mother earth and being outdoors 24/7 was another thing.
I arrived home to only feel bewildered and disorientated being in my house and the feeling hasn’t left me. The squareness of the walls and the distinct sense of being disconnected from the Earth. There is something missing in the soles of my feet.
I lay in bed last night feeling strange to be so high up off the ground and wishing I could crawl back inside my tent. And it made me wonder, is this why we as a collective are so ungrounded, so disconnected from the real world? The very homes we live in cutting off our connection to the Earth.
I’m not entirely sure where this is leading in regards to my life. However I feel this is a game changer and any idea I have had about when I eventually buy a home has flown out the window. I want to live outdoors.
