I have heard lots of advice for writers, but one thing has stuck with me.

So I try to put into words my experiences, feelings, thoughts, questions and ideas. One of my favorite ways is through haiku or other forms of poetry. I write about nature, family and whatever else comes to mind.

Spending time outdoors helps to clear my mind and relax me. To breathe the fresh air, to see the vastness of the sky, to hear the raindrops falling and wind blowing… All remind me of the glory of God. My heart then wants to praise Him.

While I love living near the woods I also enjoy the water. We spent the last two weeks of September on a lake in Maine. Every day I would sit outside thinking, writing or just simply enjoying the beauty. I have already shared some haiku inspired by that time. Now I’ll share a bit more.
Morning on the lake
Reflections in the water
Sailboat passes by
I took this video early one evening, because I wanted to capture the sound of the loons. No matter what time of day whether morning or evening the lake was lovely.
Hear the nighttime sounds
Of the loons out on the lake
