And I wonder why I am stuck in productive procrastination mode. Seriously now! Yikes, is about all I can say about this. I really need this photo to be submitted to "Home Makeover, Office Edition." Who can help this busy crazy ADHD mom get her office back?
I'm kind of on a poetry kick lately and I feel the need to share one of my favorite Emily Dickinson poems. My brother made a plaque of this in cub scouts when he was 8 and hung in our kitchen when I was growing up. I feel like I've always lived by it in some ways and it encapsulates my beliefs. It's at my core...
I've been called a tree hugger many, many times but I just recently started really hugging trees. It's part of my need to calm my crazy, zooming, whirling, spinning brain. When you hug a tree and really listen and feel and concentrate on the energy, it's so meditative. I feel the sway working it's way from the top to the bottom. I smell the freshness. I sense the calm energy flowing and it calms my brain. Have you ever REALLY hugged a tree? If not, you should try it. It's good stuff.
Talk about empowerment and relaxation. One of my favorite places to hike and meditate, as much as someone like me meditates...more like zone out with my camera, looking up and down and all around, breathing deeply.
