I’ve written about nature and connection before but it bears repeating. I’ve been remise in writing for about 65 days. Life has gotten the better of me these last few months, but I will work to change that because I am the only one that can. Time to get back to business.
As I sit by the fast moving river in Beaver Creek, Colorado, the water seems to be on a mission! I can’ t help but be inspired to also move thru whatever health and life issues have set me in a downward spiral with barely the strength to meet the day sometimes. The Aspens seem to “twinkle” with the sun’s warmth dancing on their vibrant green leaves, and it is a striking contract with the white bark and knotted tree trunk which seems to have eyes eyes that say “everything is going to be ok.” Simple really, we should take a clue from nature always.
This trip to Colorado was about renewal for me. It was about taking back my power, reflecting on my choices and making a decision on a course of action. Hiking, biking, rafting and experiencing nature’s beauty (and adventure) helped to calm the stress, focus my thoughts, and relax. Something I hope the TV ArtScapes DVD series I have developed about “feeling” like nature is right outside your window, brings to whoever sees it. We all have too much stress in our lives, we need to learn to acquiesce to calm. Relax, renew, recharge in nature. And you don’t need anyone else to do it either.
Every time I am in nature, every time, I feel great, inspired by it’s magnificence. I am reminded that we are all one, we are all here on this planet to contribute, to live, to love to share and finally return to mother earth and, I believe, continue on our journey in some way. Take a hike, ride a bike, visit the ocean or forest……nature’s healing awaits!
Peace, joy and adventure always,
