Welcome! This is a place to share how we celebrate & deepen our relationship to Nature. Here you will find stories, images, & ideas about wilderness, human nature, & soulfulness. Drawing from the experiences of everyday living, the topics on this blog include: forays into the natural world, the writing life, community service, meditation, creativity, grief & loss, inspiration, & whatever else emerges from these. I invite you on this exploration of the wild within & outside of us: the inner/outer landscape.

Hearth: comfort, beauty, nourishment for the soul

TEALarbor stories’ “Hearth” series offers a tiny, gentle respite during this incredible transition we’re in. Rest for a few seconds here in the hearth of nature and creativity. 

"Pathway #1"

Enter in. 
Imagine the speckled sunlight on your cheeks. Conjure up the chill in the air on this early spring morning. Gaze overhead at the towering firs. Notice the spaces between canopy boughs that are colored by the return of blue sky after a dark, cloudy winter. Look at the thick crowd of tree trunks and know they are friends, companions on this journey. 
Abide here in rest.
