Great sentiment, huh? It was posted by Sacred Mists, and I don’t know if it’s original to them or came from somewhere else, as most things internettish seem to circulate a bit.
The idea is so true–especially for writers who tend to spend too much time in front of their computer and not enough under the sun.
Forget writers. I think I just described almost everyone in the 21st century. And I am not disparaging therapy. But sometimes what we really need is to get out.
Everyone benefits from a walk in the woods. Like these.
Even if your “woods” happens to be a beach, a scrubby desert habitat, or a duck pond at the park.
I would love to see more pictures. In fact, if you will post your favorite picture of a natural setting–beach, meadow, forest, desert, mountains, but no urban landscapes, art museums, or selfies–I will pick the best one at the end of March and send you a copy of either of my books: Death Speaker or The Boomer Book of Christmas Memories. Your choice.
It must be a photo of a natural setting. The only other rule is that you have to say where it is, and if you didn’t take it, I think you should state where it came from. For example, the picture just above came from the Stay in Ireland FB page, and I saw it on the Ireland of a Thousand Welcomes page.
The pictures will be judged by me, and I will very subjectively pick my favorite. And it won’t matter if you took the picture or not.
