Silent walking

A drop of rain and the forest is lush green again, cleaned and rejuvenated, the greens are intense; the forest drys out quickly and it's easy to overlook that.  Although the rains have been fleeting and mainly light, the streams have risen some and flow at an increased rate, while the rain on the dried leaf litter amongst the mature Beech of the Old enclosure has softened them enough to allow you to move through the woodland almost silently, as long as you avoid the brittle twigs strewn between the trees.  Moving silently is slow and focused, allowing you to absorb more of the forest around you.
