A VISIT TO THE PAST AT UPPER CANADA VILLAGEThe faint aroma of fire, fresh cut lumber, manure - primitive smells...smells that bring you back to a simpler time.
The buzz of people is loud, but, interestly not disturbing at all. It must be the lack of cars, wireless internet, smart phone chirps...modern noises...that make things feel natural, peaceful.
Even though there is excitement, running, and lots of activity...things feel slow. Not an annoying slow like a traffic jam, but, a slowing down of life.
It was a great experience to take a day off of the modern world. And, a great way to realize you need a little slowness, a little back to basics, a little less technology, in our life.
