Even though I chose to live in New England, I am NOT a winter person.
I would be happy if it was 70 degrees all year long. That is why when Spring hits, I am inspired and just want to go back to living in the woods. No electricity, no traffic, just nature.
Nature is something that fuels, drives, and speeds-up my creativity. I wish I could store my sleep up in the winter and stay awake all spring and summer long. I don't mind being woken up by the chirping birds and my neighbor's rooster.
Yesterday was what I call "Heightened Green." The trees, grass, and bushes were at this brilliant, new-spring green. I love it. As I am typing this a hummingbird landed on our feeder two feet from the window where I am sitting. A small sparrow like bird with white stripes on its head was hopping around the yard. I don't know what kind of bird it is. I will have to look it up. Maybe I will become a bird watcher. (Or is there an age limit on that hobby?) See what I mean? Nature is inspiring.
UPDATE: I just looked it up, and I think it was a White-Crowned Sparrow.
