Let the beauty of the wild leave footprints on your heart.”
Sometimes my need for the wild…for touching the natural world…is so overwhelming, I just have to stop and go outside for awhile. I am blessed to live in the Shenandoah Valley, where my ability to do this is just a few steps away. From my kitchen window, I can gaze out to the Massanutten mountain range, and in my yard, I can watch deer, squirrels, groundhogs, and birds almost any time of year. Right now two ruby-throated hummingbirds are fiercely protecting their territory and access to the feeder. The drought is making them extra thirsty.
When you need to immerse yourself in the beauty of the wild — and you either don’t have time or are not near enough to do it — take five minutes and watch this inspiring video.
I’d love to hear about your experiences of being inspired by something in the natural world.
