… you have to get out in it. Immerse yourself in unique sun risings and large luminous moonscapes.
Invest in the future and plant saplings native to your landscape.
Walk every day (as often as possible) no matter what the weather.
Get to know the flora and fauna and appreciate the many and varied uses of all plants, big and small.
To be inspired by nature you should love the environment in which you live. Take delight in the birds, the baas, the fungi, the wind, the clouds sliding out to sea, the sun warming the hills, the rain cleaning the slate and autumn on your doorstep and down the lane.
It doesn’t take a lot of money to live a rich life if you can fully enjoy the abundance of nature.
Imagine branches as knitting needles, acorns as ink and feathers as quill pens. It has all been done before, much of it is forgotten, yet it can continue with your skilled hands and enthusiasm for the living world.
Craft life. Make useful art from compostable objects.
The first steps are often the hardest. So, put on your earthing shoes, your boots if you aren’t quite there yet, shut off your screen and walk out that door. Simple. Breathe in the fresh air and get prepared to discover your own inspiration.
