I hope everyone has had a chance to get a little time out into nature for rejuvenation in this festively hectic time of year. Even a quick walk through a park will restore and relax you when things seem a little more stressful than you would like them to be.
This month I want to inspire you with nature quotes and pics. I won’t be bombarding you with info or activities because if your calendar is like mine, there is enough going on already!
Here’s to a little inspiration and our glorious natural world!
“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive…” Eleonora Duse
What is your favorite natural space on which to rest your eyes during the day?
