Morning Walk with Early Summer Lupine

Solace can forever be found in nature. A simple morning walk, surrounded by an abundance of green and delicate lupine, offers fresh air and a reason to be grateful for the little things in life.

Stone benches are placed along the trail, and offer a quiet place to sit and reflect.

"You can't calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass." —Timber Hawkeye

The path winds through the woods while the sun peeks through and highlights the blue sky above. It is a steady trail, unmoving and always welcoming.

This will be a lovely spot to sit and spend some time with my characters. I do some of my best writing in the company of nature.

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson

Find a place you love, a place where your heart is glad and your soul is at peace. Find it, and then carry it with you always.
