It may be winter, but we still have golden afternoons. Even with no leaves on the trees, the sun caresses the branches and stops you in your tracks with the sheer beauty of nature. My horses’ barn is one of the loveliest places, and I feel privileged to visit it every day. Especially now, when so many of us have curtailed our daily activities, I look forward to the peaceful time, welcomed by hungry horses, soft nickers and the promise of summer in the golden color of the sun.
I watched a Ted talk recently, where the speaker talked about the different kinds of “rest’ that we need. Creative rest reawakens the awe and wonder inside each of us. Taking in the beauty of nature is that reset button that provides me with that restoration. Sometimes I’m even lucky enough to catch that moment in time.
