Nature can speed up recovery from illness.
Illness struck like a bolt of lightning yesterday, a 24-hour cold that left me seeking my tent where I stayed. When ill I withdraw from humanity, turn off my cellphone and concentrate on getting better.
Getting rid of humanity is one challenge, nature is another. The ants were having a party in my tent when I arrived, it took some effort to evict my unwelcome visitors. The sun heated the tent, so I left the flaps open, there I stayed in my private hell.
Nature is a healer. I listened to the birds, other birds hop by. The grey squirrel paid a visit, then I fell asleep. I awoke to Amber the fox sitting watching me, she is enjoying the sun, moving with the sun closer and closer to me. The fox is so close I become anxious since it is still a wild unpredictable animal.
Eventually Amber vanished back to her den. I leave my own artificial den, my tent, the cold begins to recede. Later I take an early night in my tent, it rains and the few ants in my tent I leave be. By morning I am well enough to return to running my stressful business.
