Elementals #10 – Simplicity

Elementals #10 – Simplicity This week I didn’t get to take a nature walk, and that might be the case for the next few weeks. I’m working extra shifts before my vacation in mid-September. I’m finally going back east to visit my mother in Virginia. We’ve been waiting for the virus to calm down, but…
