Dear Nature

Dear Nature,
Thanks for hanging out within city limits so I can spend some time with you on a daily basis.

I always said I would move out of the city after college but then college ended and I had some pretty solid social roots poked down into the Boston topsoil so I stuck around.
Recently I semi-resigned myself to a future of city-living (with plenty of trips into the woods at regular intervals) and have been making a conscious effort to notice you everywhere I go amongst the buildings and the asphalt.

You are a huge part of why I am who I am and you account for about 90% of the inspiration behind everything I make as an artist.

On Saturday Curtis and I spent some time enjoying your splendors in the Arboretum.

As always it was serene and green and full of so many birds and trees I rarely see. I will go one million times and meet something new every visit.

Anyway. I don't mean to ramble on. I just love that I live in a city that has special places for you. Just the fact that people with the power to do so encourage places like the Arboretum and the Emerald Necklace to exist, warms my heart.

Alright nature, hope you are well (you look it) and I'm sure I'll write again soon.

Yours truly,

  1. I love the hustle and bustle of the city at times but it will ALWAYS be magical to escape to nature. It's comforting.... and humbling. Sea Marie
