How is everyone doing at the end of our second week with this book? I really appreciate the good conversations happening in the forum. If you’d like to interact with and encourage other readers, there’s a lot there to interact with and encourage. 🙂 I am thrilled to see that two people shared some of their art this week, also!
This weekend, let’s let Andrew lead us on a scooter ride into a field, or a walk down a dusty road, and see what happens. Get out into nature, by yourself if you can. Find a walking path or bike trail near your house, or a natural area in town, or some other place outside, even your backyard. Stay out there long enough to relax. Touch things. Listen. Pay attention to what you hear and see and smell and feel. (And taste? Bring water with you.)
Then just write. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect. Write what you feel, what comes to mind; your questions, a connection, or the sense of wonder in nature (or the lack of that sense; no pressure). Plant seeds on the paper. You can weed them later. You can even throw them away. The writing itself is worth doing.
Come on over to the forum if you want to share or to talk. 🙂 We’ll read chapters 6-7 next week.
