Next week, I have the privilege to visit students at a school in the Glen Abbey area of Oakville. It is a special school for me as it is nestled in the nature trails that inspired elements of the creation of “The Secret’s Out”.
At times, we are reminded to take a step back from the business of our daily life and immerse ourselves into nature.
Why? What is the importance of such a practice?
Connecting with nature fosters our ability to tap into other aspects of our being. We become aware of the life that surrounds us and, if we allow it, it can support us to move forward in a creative and productive way.
I have been asked on several occasions about the dragonfly that is present in “The Secret’s Out”. Is this a favorite insect? Have you always liked dragonflies? With a slight chuckle, I have to admit that the dragonfly had not been on my radar before writing my book. In some ways you might say that dragonflies guided me through the process.
We are not always sure what the guidance along the way is, or the inspiration for that matter, however following the clues along the journey will inevitably deliver an outcome that is sure to provide new insights and open doors.
What is standing in your way in discovering the inspiration when it presents itself out of the blue?
