Work, home, play……. my play… is outside.
I spend a lot of time with my own thoughts; working on my dreams. This year I have spent a lot of time outside. During my lunch breaks, I sat under my tree on the edge of the property line outside the office, furthest from the doors. Some days, I went to the local parks and ate lunch in the woods or near a stream. I enjoy being outdoors as it give me an opportunity to observe my surrounds and even myself. For me the great outdoors is the perfect place for mediation.
While I am leisurely walking down a nature trail or sitting on a park bench, I enjoy watching the day pass. Listening to the birds chirp attempting to identify them by sound, or watching the puffy clouds float across the blue skies. I love watching the chipmunks and the squirrels run from tree to tree busy going out their tasks, not even noticing my intrusion into their world. It does wonders for my soul to watch nature be itself and feel how we each have a part to play in this world.
All of this time spent outside, being a part of the scene, recharges my mind to be able to follow my dreams and write.
