With apologies to the Beatles: When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Nature comes to me. Speaking words of wisdom. Let it be. Let it be.
STPAL Mission Statement: Southeastern Trust for Parks and Land makes use of natural land to foster natural land conservation; environmental stewardship; science education and research; and public recreation for the benefit of individuals and communities.
In times of trouble look for peace in nature.
A red bird visiting on a sad anniversary.
A cool breeze during an uphill hike in July.
A wildflower’s bloom in an unexpected place.
A deer that pauses to share a moment before continuing its foraging.
The quiet of a forest.
The noise of a mountain stream.
These things bring us closer to home when we find ourselves in times of trouble.
