Yesterday morning I took a break from writing my thesis and went for a bike ride and walk in the woods. The forest floor was damp and new life spread everywhere. With so much chaos and intense paper writing inside libraries, it can be hard to remember to enjoy the renewed hope of spring.
My mind is set free when I am surrounded by natural beauty.
I am always amazed in the spring when so many perennials push themselves out of the Earth. They remind me that warm weather will too push me out of hibernation and into the wonderful world.
Stop everything you are doing, go outside, and smell the flowers.
As I transition from college to a farm, there are many commitments I have for myself.
1. Sit still outside and appreciate all I have
2. Identify plants and learn their characteristics
3. Read books that I want to read
4. Practice Yoga everyday
5. Write letters to the community I will miss
