“Adopt the pace of nature. Her secret is patience.” Emerson
How often are you in nature? How do you feel there? What do you most love about nature?
We are not currently living in a time when it is easy to be patient. We all want things to return to normal. We want to work again, visit friends and relatives, eat out for dinner, or visit an art festival. When we are feeling irritable or anxious, nature can offer us some peace and help us find the patience we need to slow down.
Once I’m in nature, tension drops away. It’s affected me that way as long as I can remember because I spent a lot of time in the forests of Arkansas as I grew up. Hiking and swimming in streams were two of my family’s favorite outings and as a kid I thought this activity was fun.
Now, stepping into the forest or my shady backyard takes me to a peaceful place immediately. So today, I’m offering you a different kind of blog post—one with photos of natural scenes I’ve observed, and I do include animals as a part of nature. I hope this experience will bring you peace and laughter.
