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” blog posts offer a tiny, gentle respite during this incredible transition we’re in. Rest for a few seconds here in the hearth of everyday nature and creativity. 

"Purple Spire"

Start at the place in the image that first draws your attention. 
Very slowly allow your eyes to roam the photo; have no tension and be in no rush. 
Feel your way into the shapes, colors, textures.
Notice the negative space (the parts of the image that seem to be in between, or in the background, of the photo or of your attention). 
Embrace these moments of awareness.
May you leave this space with a feeling of balanced well-being.
