for the first time in my life i am experiencing seasons. the city of trees has gone from green to gold, auburn, ochre and every color in between. so we decided to take the scenic, hour-long drive north to idaho city for a mountain view of the autumn splendor, oblivious to the fact that the boise national forest is entirely populated with coniferous evergreens. we enjoyed it anyway.
this wasn’t really an unplugged outing. we listened to music., talked a bit but sat mostly in silence. and once we got to our destination, we tinkered around for a minute but then just headed back with pizza dinner on the brain.
sometimes unplugging, whether you’re child or adult, can be as simple as going for a quiet drive and letting your mind wander as you meditate on the open road.
