“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside,  somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God…I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”   Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Thanks to my husband, I have become an avid hiker and now we are on the trails of N.J. or N.Y. every weekend rain or shine all year round.  Thanks to Dr. Ben’s Personal Insect Repellent, I can honestly say that I feel protected from the pesky biting bugs, especially ticks. Thanks to an amazing self-help therapy, shown to me by Dr. Goodsoul  (See I Think I'm Getting the Fear),  my fear of bites leading to sickness,  is finally fading away.  And last but not least... I’m especially thankful  for discovering   the joy,  wonder and challenges of exploring Mother  Nature’s playground… and being a kid all over again.
