Solace, inspiration, adventure
“Nature has been for me, for as long as I remember, a source of solace, inspiration, adventure, and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion.” — Lorraine Anderson
Whatever may be bugging you, I’ll bet it would be eased somewhat if you could manage a few moments to get away to a place without electronics, cars, concrete or advertising. A vacation to a gorgeous national or state park may not be possible (although I highly recommend saving and planning for one as soon as you can) but surely you are near a spot of green somewhere. A city park, a back yard, a pasture or forest, anywhere you can close your eyes and listen to birds and breezes, or open them and see grass, sand, trees or sky.
If you don’t have more than five minutes to spare today, do an online search for beautiful photos of nature. You’re likely to come up with some pretty scenes, many of which may be set to music in an online slide show designed to give people a quick nature fix. There is no more agreeable home, teacher or companion than God’s beautiful creation. I hope you will enjoy at least a few minutes of it today!
