Where I live, I can just smell this picture. Living near farms my whole life, I have always known what smells they bring. This pasture of cows has always drawn my attention because they will come up to the fence to socialize with you. I like to just take some time to go and see them. They are animals none the less and most animals can cure a bad mood from a long day.
Peak through all of the work and stress that this time has to bring. Empower your mind to think positive and be optimistic. Find new hobbies, read books, and have fun. We are all in this together and no one needs to be down for the holidays. Do not get trapped under all the work, be like the grass and reach for the light.
Nature may refer to living plants and animals, geological processes, weather, and physics, such as matter and energy. The plant life is quite fascinating, during this cold time I was intrigued by the changes in how the plants have adapted. The small stream by my house froze over but I could still see the small fish swimming throughout. I took the liberty in feeding the birds in my backyard at our bird feeder. I have always been interested in backyard birds and this year is no different. It is calming to watch the different birds such as Robins, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Bluebirds and Woodpeckers pass by and take their meal.
It is calming to just sit back and relax and admire the clouds, admire what is passing over your head, admire the different colors as time passes. Playing soccer in the background is my younger brother and Gavin Mpiana '23. We were getting some exercise in while the weather was still warmer. Some clear weather can make for a clear head. It was nice to get away from the heavy duty workload of school and just have some fun with family and friends.
