It’s not been a good two weeks because of all the hysteria and nastiness in the media. And it’s toxic, especially for my creativity. After reading the book Your Happiness is Hacked (and highly recommended!), it was very eye opening to how we’re being manipulated by social media.
But the book also mentions that people spend their time on their SmartPhones and don’t get out in nature much any more. So I thought a trip out to have some fun was in order. Nature is one of the greatest things for refreshing me.
I found Occuquan Regional Park. It’s a park with boating ramps and some nice paths following along the Occuquan River.
This is a view of the river. Though it looks like it’s about to storm, it never did. I’m still waiting for some rain. And it’s humid!
Some fall colors. We’re still about a month off from all the trees turning, so these are some early birds. I think these are oaks.
And a historical sighting. This is called the Beehive Kiln. Some of the history is here.
