Weekly Photo Challenge – New Horizon

Tags : 

I love being outside when it’s warm, feeling the sun or breeze on my face, smelling the flowers or the ocean depending on where I happen to be. However, in the winter time, I am exactly the opposite, I hate being outside. I don’t care for the cold or snow and choose to spend my time snuggled up indoors, preferably in my pyjamas with a glass of wine cup of hot tea.

Photography PrintsAnyway, it was being outside in the above-mentioned cold and snow which inspired the artwork below, which is my contribution to this week’s challenge. I was taking Lucy (my Saint Bernard) outside for her evening constitution and the wind was so biting I ducked under the branches of a big old tree for shelter. I leaned against its trunk while she was sniffing around looking for heaven know’s what; and in that moment I was reminded of how much I missed being immersed in and connected to nature. As cold as I was, it felt really good.

So what’s on the horizon for me in the future?  Just that, to visit that big tree, Lucy in tow of course, whenever I feel the need to connect to Mother Earth. I won’t be staying there long, because I still hate the cold, but it doesn’t take more than a few minutes to feel grounded and to appreciate being alive. Even though I now have a solution to feed my nature fix during the long cold winter, I’m still thinking….roll on Spring :).
