Hello everyone!

If you think that it's been a long time since I visited your profile, you are absolutely right. I haven't been doing much visitinghere since the end of March. One thing that I have been doing, however, is logging into DN acouple of times a day so that people here wouldn't worry about me.

My state of Michigan went into lockdown on March 15th. Because I am in a high risk category, (heart attack last December among other things) I take lockdown very seriously. My husband started doing all of the grocery shopping. I stopped going to any stores. I either worked (part time because business is down) or stayed at home. It didn't take long for me to start feeling stir crazy.

Then I rediscovered an old love of mine. Nature.I started going to a nature center near my house with my camera in tow. The center itself was closed, but the trails were not. I walked those trails, sat on benches, listened, observed, and started taking photos. I've taken several thousand photos since March, and have no plans of slowing down anytime soon. I've photographed trees, trails, birds, deer, wildflowers, squirrels, insects, and more.

I've been to at least 6 Nature Centers now. The wallpapers I uploaded today (even the blue Chevy wallpaper!) are from 3 different ones that I've been to recently.

I feel so much calmer and happier than I used to. Trail walking or even just sitting outdoors and listening is wonderful medicine. Give it a try and you won't be sorry!

I hope to start getting more active here again. I have ideas for 2 nature groups that I haven't yet seen on DN. I actually meant to start those 2 groups a month ago though, and it didn't happen.:P If and when I finally do, I will let you know. :)

Thank you for not giving up on me. There've been many days when I've desperately needed to walk the trails and let the computer go. With the way that things are happening in our troubled world, I'll likely continue to need the trails very much. I'll try not to be as much of a stranger though. You might be surprised at how much I think of many of you as I walk!

May God bless you all and keep you safe.

Hugs,

Elaine :)
