Are You Bored?
Bored and tired of writing the same old stuff? Have you written your last paragraph about the same old thing? Why not lay down your pencil (or pen, laptop or whatever) and get out of the house. Have you noticed that Spring is blooming?
Yesterday I was out and I noticed those pretty pink trees blooming and putting off their fragrant sweet scent. I don't know their name, but they inspired me to breathe deep and clear my mind. Then I remembered that the East coast of the United States is still buried in snow. At first I was depressed, but then I thought of how I might send some of my own good thoughts to the people there.
Pretend you can see all the greenery of Southern Oregon as it shoots up into buds. The pear trees are still dormant from their own winter sleep, but grass is growing in the fields, tickling their trunks. An eagle sits perched atop a telephone pole gazing down into a field, probably hoping to find its next meal. The cows are out in the pastures munching on the sweet grass. I spied an old dilapidated barn that was sagging under its own weight. It looked like it was ready to collapse and had boards missing from its sides.
I saw all this in a short ride from one city to the next. I was exhilarated with nature and my creative juices began to flow. I believe whatever scenery is near where you are, be it rain, shine or snow, a short jaunt out in nature will be to your benefit and help revive your senses. Enjoy what is before you today.
