for me, it is trying to return to my love for just being outside. at 62 i have spent much of my adult life working and raising children. although i live on a farm, taking the time to just BE in nature is rare--always something to do. i want to nature journal as a gift to myself--to allow myself to slow down and enjoy the wonder of the world around me.
i particularly am drawn to the stories of the nature journalists. i hope that i can create a bit of my own style while copying the beautiful work shared with me here.
