When you think of buying the next thing to make you happy, just go for a walk in the countryside instead. Nature offers so much more than we will ever be able to create. Today I was standing under a horse chestnut tree with my parents and Valentina. We were looking for newly-fallen conkers; suddenly a shower of them dropped from the tree and narrowly missed us. Then again, and again. We laughed, we ran (well, I shuffled!), Valentina picked them up.
How can it be that the wonder of finding fresh conkers never changes? The digital and man-made worlds are just no match for what has been created for us by one much more powerful.
