Creative Pension Payment:  More Time to Appreciate Nature

 

Trees are badass.  They provide shelter and shade for other living things.  They’re beautiful and diverse.  Artists and photographers love trees.  I live in a community where trees are protected and I can see them from every window in my home.  This is a collection of photos of trees that are special to me.  That’s all.

Mark Vicksburg Tree

Taken on Washington St. in Vicksburg, Ms. by Mark Winslet.  I love this because it reminds me of historic down town, across the from Attic Gallery and Highway 61 Coffee Shop.

  1. In Japan it’s become popular to go into a forest for a short amount of time to practice “forest bathing” – SHINRIN-KYOKU. They say it reduces stress, lowers blood pressure and lower blood glucose levels…I’m so glad I live in this town too – I can just sit out in my backyard to forest bathe

    I like the trees too! Thank you for the photos.
