So what do I do to break the cycle? #1 on my list is to get out in nature.
I love where i live. Hillsborough is awesome and its easy to feel inspired here. I can drive two miles and go for a hike at the Historic Orange Speedway (specifically on the James Johnston preserve). I can go four miles to Occoneechee Mountain. It is generally my hope to see some cool mushrooms and some sort of wildlife. I don't know why i've grown to have such an affinity to mushrooms. I think i've started realizing that the varieties are endless, and even when everything else looks dead they are still alive and thriving. Here are some of my favorites:
And while I'm hiking I would be disappointed if I didn't run into some sort of wildlife.
Now if I REALLY need to recharge my batteries I'll jump in the car and drive to Mooresville NC to go to Lazy 5 Ranch.
Yes, I realize I'm grown. But who cares?? Feeding animals right from the car is pretty darn awesome. They can slobber all over me, I don't care.
I also need to get out and get on a river. I plan on doing some kayaking and canoeing as soon as it warms up outside.
