The kind of two-legged beings who call us home and keep coming back are especially the ones who’ve been liberated from the system or dream of becoming free soon. They are the beautiful beings who are looking to connect with other kind hearted humans and animals, They want to spend some time to reconnect with their soul in the midst of nature.
