N is for NATURE


I am inspired by NATURE. 
If the ideas don't come, I go outside.
 I sit on the back steps to hang out in the sun for awhile.
 Maybe pull a weed or two, 
nothing too involved. 
If it's cold, I open the kitchen window and toss bread to the squirrels
 Or fill the feeders with seed for the sparrows and buntings. 
 I don't know what it is —
 Fresh air, seasonal colors, the busy animals, all with a purpose —
 But sure enough, soon I can't wait to get back to writing.

  1. Lovely post Dawn thank you! I've just come back from a walk in Nature, essential to clear the fog and air in my head and let my ego take a back seat and just enjoy what I see. Ideas do come then (sometimes) out of nowhere it seems. Your photograph is how the leaves are here in South Africa - autumn (fall) is here ...a lovely time of year.

  2. Whenever I hit a writer's block, I go outside and take a walk. The fresh air does wonders!
