Spring Views


"Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise." 
—George Washington Carver

I just blink my eyes in the spring and it seems I miss something wonderful. Fortunately, I happened along a trail in early spring and discovered a scattering of these shy Trillium plants gracing the forest.

George Washington Carver—the brilliant scientist, botanist, artist, and inventor—particularly found inspiration in the woods he loved. A gentle man of strong faith, he rose before dawn to make sure he was outside and listening for his "marching orders" before he began work. 


Being a nightowl myself, I confess I'm rarely up so early. Yet, I love spending time seeking nature's solitude before I begin writing. As George Washington Carver knew, it is a place to find elusive joy, inspiration, and renewed faith. 


"I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in."

 —George Washington Carver
