Waiting to be enjoyed

Palos Verdes, California -- one of countless free pleasures awaiting you! March 2004

Palos Verdes, California — one of countless free pleasures awaiting you! March 2004

“…no matter where you live, the woods and parks, the trees, sky and sun are free and only waiting to be enjoyed.  You never know what you’ll learn from a walk in the park.”
Tammy Strobel

Whenever the weather is nice — not too hot or cold, sunny with maybe a light breeze, or in the early hours of the evening or morning — I always feel I’m wasting something precious if I don’t spend some time outdoors.  Even if it’s only a few minutes, there is something rejuvenating about taking in the greens and blues and splashes of other colors found in nature.

Be on the lookout for the next really nice day.  Maybe it will be the first touch of fall for those who live in the northern climates, or an unusually mild day in the southern climates, or just a pleasant evening when the sun is down but still lighting the sky.  There is something beautiful out there, just waiting for you to enjoy it.  I hope you will find it!

  1. Good morning, Julia! I’m on a walk right now!
    And now, to put away my phone and enjoy the local park!

    • Well it’s nice to know I was with you on that walk! Just one of many we’ve taken together, in person or virtually. Have a great weekend!

      • Thank you! I enjoyed a walk “with you” this morning, too!
