The morning felt ordinary up until the contribution hour, when participants helped out with household chores as usual. However, this time whispers of a hike to secret location flew from one ear to another and everyone got excited.
The rumors turned out to be true, and the group quickly prepared for the day-trip. They carried the essentials for the campsite and dinner. Half an hour after the group had left the house, they reached the location in the forest where their campsite would be. Everyone dropped their bags and Laura invited them to create a circle with their backs against each other. She invited them to get lost in the woods to explore nature by following the direction their noses pointed. Everyone was invited to walk in silence to hear the nature and stay alone with their thoughts for the next three hours.
When the sun began setting down, most of those who went deep into the woods started to return back, until the numbers grew close to twenty. However, this wasn’t all of them. Two of them were lost until dark clouds rolled over the wild woods, creating some worry around the campfire.
Just an hour later, the lost people were brought safely back to the camp for dinner. Everyone was happy to be back together and started preparing for the way back, knowing that all of them were safe although with wet socks.
Hocus pocus, tends to lose focus and blooms like lotus.
