Hi Everyone,

Thanks for joining us.  I hope that those of you who do nature journaling now feel charged to do something new this week.  And if you have never done nature journaling, I hope you’re intrigued and will let go of inhibitions and try.  It’ll give you a much-needed haven of peace.

In the meantime, here are some books I have enjoyed reading recently:

Stay safe,
Amy
