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.

TEALarbor stories’ Monday Musings are simple practices for exploring the inner/outer landscape. Each weekly practice can take just a few seconds or as long as you like. The practice is most effective when repeated over time. 

Take three photographs of something you love in the natural world surrounding your home; capture one image from a distance, take another shot from two or three feet away, and move in as close as you can to snap the last photograph.
