Nature Inspires and Challenges

by Jen Parrish of Parrish Relics

I had a very abrupt and major change recently that made me re-evaluate what was important in my life, what I wanted more of. I get so much joy just being in nature, walking hiking paths through the many green places in our area, even in the winter there is beauty to be found.

Hiking with a group recently in the Middlesex Fells, I found new paths, faced and conquered a great fear of heights.

What it Inspired: Leaves of Stained Glass

I would highly recommend utilizing Meet Up Groups as a great resource of finding new adventures. A recent outing to my favorite Audubon Sanctuary for a Wolf Moon hike in the dim light of the moon was an experience I will never forget. Seeing deer at rest, beavers swimming, silently soaring owls and hearing coyotes howl with a great group of people and exploring the park normally closed at night with a very knowledgeable leader was such a privilege. The exercise is an added bonus! I am not brave enough to venture out in the deep snow or extreme cold, but I will be watching the weather for the next mild day to get out once again.
