Free Write Friday: Get out in nature as a way of taking some much-needed time away today. Even if that is your balcony, there is sky and air and hopefully something green in sight. If you are able to be alone for a few minutes, take your journal with you, and sit down somewhere. Describe what you see, hear, taste, smell, touch. Turn it into a small (probably unrhymed) poem, and share with us, if you'd like! If you have other people with you, how does it feel to describe those things aloud to them? Are you able to be experience the same openness to your surroundings? How does pausing to be present to your senses in this way give you "time away" even in the midst of all your life carries right now?
