A walk in a park is a great way to get rid of stress. A great what way to “recharge your batteries” as a German doctor once told me. It can be in the woods, along the shore of a river, lake, or ocean, in the mountains or in the desert. It’s best if it’s a place where there are few people. Where you can feel connected with the natural environment: the trees, the flowers, the animals and by so doing, get in touch and in sync with the world, the stars and the Heavens. Several times a year I like to go to Leesylvania park which is just a few miles from my home. I take my dogs and we walk through the woods and along the shore of the Potomac river for an hour or two. It also gives me and the dogs some good exercise which nearly all of us could use.
Since I’ve been writing poetry a lot lately and I may take a class in poetry, I decided to start a blog just for my poetry. Its called Crayons in the Sun. I started by copying my poetry from this blog to it. Now I will start adding some new poems.
