Welcome to my little corner patio of the internet. Have a seat in the shade and a glass of water. I love being outside and I blog about nature nearby.

Also, I write, create paper and books, and connect it all together in my Writing Nature Nearby workshop.

Thanks for visiting and stop by again soon.
