This post is inspired by Cindy Knoke’s fabulous photo stories; Paul Militaru’s fabulous subject choices; and Jill Shalvis who used to regularly post her inspiring writing views.

Wind rustling leaves on spring trees sound like applause

Yay, Gina, you’re writing!

The twin tree is dressed in Spring foliage. Birds sing and chirp in every direction. Squirrels chase each other around the trunk and on the grassy ground. Fresh breezy air gently moves hair tendrils on my cheek.

The path ahead is the same yet not the same.

A week before Spring equinox, I started a new part-time job that brought more freedom, time, and appreciation to writing.

Snowy winter trees in February – I spent plenty of time writing and living the Food As Ally program. Inside. Under blankets with hot tea close by. I call this tree the Twins because there is one trunk.

The pond water changes color with the temperature and time of day. Details I notice from time spent staring while words form in my mind.

The world was black and white that day. No filters.

This is me, flushed and excited by my new home and moving boxes.

In October when I saw this balcony view I daydreamed of writing here before the cold weather chased me back inside. This is how it looked in early December, the day I moved in.

I hope you enjoyed my view and my words as much as I enjoy sharing them with you. Natural Gifts, indeed.
