Do you See the Beauty for the Trees?

I walk every morning as a regular routine. I enjoy the fresh air, the morning dew, it gives me time to think and clear my head. Even though I do it for health reasons to get exercise each day it is also the time when I come up with new ideas for articles, cartoons, and so on. Exercising is a great way of unleashing your creativity. The other morning I was on a walk enjoying the fresh air and was noticing the beauty of nature. A couple trees had some unique shapes, and some of the knots in the wood looked interesting. I just wondered how many people actually take the time to really look at nature. As creative people those same trees can become homes for unique creatures, the centre piece for a beautiful landscape painting and more. Next time you are out for a walk look a little harder at nature, you may be surprised at what you see. Feel free to take your sketchbook with you, it may be the start of a new adventure.
