Nature Peace 5

"The Beauty From Within"
I just loved the concept of an egg giving birth to a blossom.

This piece was done in a puddle out in the woods that filled the whole path.

Natural Peace 3

Today's Nature Piece was done during a modest drizzle. Rather symbolic being as it represents that though life may bring rain and darkness, through the natural process there is still hope and beauty.

Yet another Nature Piece.

A Natural Return

Thanks to a valued suggestion of Deputy AaronB, this solution is a continuation of taking that well needed "breath". If life's struggles and worries haunt you too much, do this...

Take 30 minutes to an hour out of your day, away from any screens. Journey out into the world and collect any material that has been provided from nature itself. Make a piece of art from what you have gathered, take a deep breath - and enjoy it for it's simplicity, beauty, and temporary existence.

This act provides a sense of purpose, a connection to the world, and a feeling of accomplishment that can possibly carry you through some of the hardest moments.

A breath

Too often we strike without knowing,
too often we speak without thought.

perhaps what is needed is a breath,
a pause to identify what is truly important.

Is it this petty hate?
or that petty need?

Indeed not,
for there is meaning and importance greater than all of us
that must be considered above all.

For whence hatred spawns,
there can be no peace.
For whence hatred spawns,
there can be no joy.
For whence hatred spawns,
there can be no humanity.

In silence sit together,
let us take a moment to pause,
and together,
take a breath.
