Nature Break

When pro cyclists have to pee they call, “Nature Break!” and the whole peloton pulls over to wiz in a field.

This is not that type of Nature Break.

This Nature Break is a pause in your day sponsored by Mother Nature. And Cheryl Strayed’s mom.

Here is the wisdom that Cheryl Strayed’s mom shared with her:

Every day put yourself in the way of beauty.

Bobbi Lambrecht

Here is a collection of beauty for your Nature Break today:

Lake Brandt, Greensboro NC
Imagine how pretty we appear to others when we are transitioning too.
Is it just me or does it seem like there are a zillion more acorns this year? One bounced off my helmet while I was riding my bike and it sounded like I was being shot at.

I will close this Nature Break with these wise words from Aristotle, not quite as wise at Cheryl’s mom, but close:

In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.

Soothing My Terrible Tuesdays

I know most people hate Mondays. Not me.

From the movie Office Space via

On Monday I still have the buffer of coming off the weekend. It’s only been 1 day at the office, its all good!

Tuesday though. The wheels fall off for me on Tuesday. All the stored up juju from the weekend is long gone. Yet Friday is f a a a a r away.

If you have been around here for a minute, you know that nature boosts my juju. I am going to start to post a little mood booster on Tuesdays. This is where a physical environment is essential to making a life that is sustainably productive. If I have things in my space that I love and think are beautiful, it reduces stress and increases happiness!

Azalea from our backyard. It is really showing off this year. Not sure what I did wrong in previous years when it did not bloom at all, but it is going gang busters now!
