It has been a while since we have been closer to Mother Nature, a bit because of the last holidays in Poland, and for the time spent doing X-mas shopping before.
We needed it, both of us and even our little Lara, which seems to prefer to look at trees and a blue sky over her stroller, than lights and people in some shopping center.
So, despite the cold, we came back for a walk in the well-equipped area of Snogeholm, about fifty kilometres east of Malmö, which has trails suitable for disables and so very good for our stroller.
We went deep in the silence of the forest, we skirted the frozen lake, we admired — once again — some of the centuries-old oak trees in the area (”the trees of memory” as have been nicknamed here, and they are one of the area’s pride).
Of course, we have suffered and felt the cold, us more than the warm Lara in her stroller.
But we were there, only us, holding and hugging each other, surrounded by an icy fairy tale around: the cold, the forest, the silence.
And the last rays of sun painted the moment.
The innocent and amazed smile of our daughter gave a sense to everything.
