Have you ever gazed upon the clouds and identified other image within the cloud formation? How about peering into the dew-laden blades of grass and seeing diamonds or crystals? Some of Mother Nature's most common occurrences can easily be used to set your muse in motion.
Raindrops…. Have you ever taken a walk through a forest or garden after the rain? What struck you the most about the ways in which the raindrops mingled with the plant life? Try spending some time peering into the raindrops that have perched on the grass, leaves and flowers… and then allow your mind to take you on a trip down memory lane to rains and nature walks of days long gone.
Rainbows… Whether it is the memory of a family viewing of the movie "The Wizard of Oz" and the well known song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" or it is a memory of the appearance of a rainbow at a significant time in your personal life, almost everyone has a rainbow story
Lightening, ice, fog …… all of these evoke such powerful memories for me when I take the time to stop and appreciate the wonder of Mother Nature's beauty and mystery. How about you? Are there stories within that are just waiting for the perfect nudge from Mother Nature? Spend some time over the next two eeks or so communing with Mother Nature's phenomenon and turn those moments into opportunities to write your own stories.
