Come for a Walk

(If you are reading this blog post through email, please come to the blog to view this slideshow)

Nature is my source of nurture and has been since I was a little girl. Last week I went exploring a nature trail I'd never been on before, the Widow White Creek Watershed. This five square mile area nestled in an urban area  acts as a sort of bathtub, draining water to a common point, the Mad River Estuary, before it reaches the Pacific Ocean.

It was early morning when I went out, and  I was immersed in this green heaven for almost two hours. I was inspired to purchase a larger memory card for my camera so the next time I go out I can also record the sounds of peaceful water, wind in ancient trees, robins expressing joy. I felt totally connected to my surroundings; everything was bright and sparkly, and I felt alive and brand new. It was magic.

Thanks for taking this walk with me.

Bright blessings,
