..for the past couple of years I’ve taken to walking around the woods and meadows of Hampstead Heath early every Sunday morning. The Japanese have a term for it. Shrinrin-yoku. Forest bathing. Immersion in the green light and forced perspectives beneath a forest canopy. The birdsong and the cathedral hush.
Absolutely this. Whilst having a baby has been largely an unmitigated joy, one of the drawbacks is the lack of time to get out of London and spend the day(s) bathing in the quiet calm of the forest.
