Have you ever had the feeling that time slowed down, your breathing became relaxed, and you felt a renewed connection to the world around you? I had this experience recently when I went nature journaling and painting at Helen Putnam Park with Amy Winzer recently. Even though I have been stressing about taxes and a million other things getting out into nature with a friend and paying deep attention to a tree while playing with watercolor had an instant effect. If you want a taste of relaxation during tax season come on my next nature journaling trip to the Grove of Old Trees on March 8th be sure to rsvp if you want to come, space is limited.
