Jemma, immersing ourselves in nature is an experience that truly heals our souls and minds. Thanks for reminding me how beautiful just sitting surrounded by nature can be a blessing.

I go fishing once a week. To get to the river where I fish I walk through fields and the woods for roughly 40 minutes, enjoying seeing everything from rabbits, wood pigeons to squirrels.

During summer time when the water is shallow and warm, I wade through the water with a fly rod. You spend so many hours actually in the river you feel truly connected with the river and everything that lives in it.

I make my livelihood in a factory, mass producing baked goods. My highlight of the week is fishing by the river, learning to understand and connect with itevry moment I’m there.
