I’m more a Spring kind of girl, and yet, most of my creative inspiration this week has come from Winter’s beauty.
I created a winter wonderland in the draft of my second book, watched documentaries about the Nordic regions, and took pictures of ice crystals on my windshield.
I’ve learned to be more present, aware of what I see, hear, and feel. It’s so easy to get immersed in the busyness of life; stopping to smell a rose just isn’t productive.
And yet, I needed such a moment. The world seems so big and every decision a daunting one, but when I stare through my camera phone at the intricacies of ice, I feel amazed. By science, nature’s magic, an unseen yet felt spirituality.
