East group met yesterday for a field trip to Bluff Point in Groton, CT. It is a beautiful spit of land bound by an estuary, beach, Long Island Sound and woodlands. There Beth, out leader for the day, introduced us to the idea of cycles in nature. Later we separated and found a place to "solo" sitting quietly by ourselves writing, sketching, etc. After about an hour we shared on the beach, comparing and contrasting how this activity inspired us.
Try it yourself. Find a peaceful natural area, sit quietly and write or draw; you'll be glad you did.
