I love to take a walk on the beach or in the woods, and just absorb it...lols Then I find just the perfect spot to sit, and write about what I have absorbed. For some reason, nature touches deep within me, and speaks. Does that make sense? The sights, smells, sounds, vibrations...all contribute to my poetry, short stories, thoughts, and feelings. And taking a camera along don't hurt:)

I like to just find a nice place to sit and listen to the things that I can't see at the moment. I do take alot of photos too though, just for fun.

I love going for nature walks. I love trees! I love finding the one I think is enchanted...really! lol I love smelling the fresh air, the water, the soil. It gives me lots of inspiration for writing and also my artwork. Besides, it makes me feel like a kid again...which is so nice sometimes.

My friend lives up in Northern wisconsin.....and I say there is magic in the trees! I also write poetry etc and find much inspiration in nature...it's like it touches a part of you and opens it up the creativity!

I love to walk on the beach and in the woods too. I usually have someone with me - husband, kid and I don't get to sit and absorb it on my own. It sounds so peaceful and relaxing.

I love walking in the countryside, I love the fresh air, beauty and the wildlife, it is so easy to take it all for granted and most of us are guilty of doing that. I love going for long walks taking with me a good book, I find a nice quiet spot and sit in the peaceful surrounds amongst nature and read, it's so relaxing, a great way to beat stress and to appreciate nature at her finest.
