☆ play 遊ぶ
Most of the time when we talk about playing outdoors, we are talking about children. Kids play outside, doing unstructured things like I mentioned yesterday, climbing trees, jumping over things, picking up sticks and stones to look at or play pretend sword fights with.
Unfortunately, as we get older, we don’t really tend to play in nature anymore. We do things outdoors, but they are usually structured, or organized, like skiing, or hiking, playing tennis. All of these are great fun and good for us, of course, but what about just being in nature, without anything to play or do… can you do that? I’m not sure if I could!
