One of the most tragic things about human nature is that we tend to put off living. We daydream about discovering and getting lost in new places, lusting after the lives of “the lucky few” gallivanting around exotic locales on their perfectly manicured social media accounts. It’s easy to forget to look outside your own window, listen to the birds, or look up at the stars.
We forget that we live in a little slice of paradise and many are unaware of the vast amount of hidden gems right at our doorstep. Idyllic Isolation hopes to ignite curiosity and inspire more kiwis to explore their own backyard.
A connection with nature is a forgotten necessity for the human spirit. If you wait for perfect conditions, you may end up waiting for the rest of your life. There is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. Rain provides the very essence of life and if we would only allow ourselves to let go then even the most over-civilised sophisticated people would find that nature is not something else, but a part of all of us, and speaks silently to the very core of your being.
