Do you also think some of the best childhood memories are in nature ?
When I was a kid, I had my own garden, it was kind of my second space. A place to take care of nature, to learn how to grow plants, to observe insects, to build my own world. It became a nice small piece of garden to enjoy snacks and games with other kids, under the shadow of a gigantic cedar.
With my neighbour, we used to head outside and build shelters everywhere: some were in the trees, others underground, tree houses hidden under the branches. Those cabins were ours only, parents were not allowed! We always found remote places, so we were really quiet.
When I was a child, I liked to walk with my parents in the forest in the autumn and smell the scents of leaves, mushrooms and mosses.
