    Thanks for the Anne Frank quote, Jessica. That longing for the outdoors is something I certainly have experienced more and more lately, during the need to shelter-in-place and amidst the wildfires here in CA. But I also agree that being outdoors “does” something to my prayer life, too—I feel “closer” to God in these spaces—walking beside the water, surrounded by looming Redwoods—than I do indoors. I wonder if adding some nature background noise to times of “silent” prayer could be helpful to help recreate this experience indoors. It’s something I’m going to try out, thanks to what you shared!
