Friday Photo:The Tonic of Nature is a Visual Meditation!

Pictured above is part of ranch property in Lompoc which is one of the small villages in Santa Barbara County.  It has many ranches.  Not far from there on the other side of the highway is a blueberry ranch where you can pick your own.  Right now it is closed for the season.

 

Every so often we head out of town.  We enjoy seeing Nature untouched by humans. Thursday morning we did just that.  It was a beautiful sunny day, the temperatures reached a high of 68 F.   For us, it a restful moment away, Nature becomes a visual meditation.

 

“We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden or Life in the Woods

Happy Friday!

Nina Hollander, Broker That is exactly what I was telling Ron.  There was an artist we discovered many years ago who painted these scenes using egg tempera paints, and his work was this vibrant.  A

Bob "RealMan" Timm I can see the connection you shared.  The dark trees are the living  oaks that are native to our area, and that chartreuse green is the result of the rains.  A

Michael Jacobs the minute we pass Goleta, the landscape changes into this wonderful scene, and then the ocean appears below.  It is worth the drive and lunch at Industrial Easts is a wonderful place to stop.  A

Yes, it's good to get out and see Nature in her raw beauty. And, to have a good lunch is icing on the cake.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- Larry and I feel like you and Thoreau...it is important and like a daily vitamin to get out with nature. When the weather is bad or too cold (like this morning) we will go to Kickerillo even if only for a shortened walk. Starting the day off this way is meditative for us.

Kathy Streib it no doubts keeps you young and in good frame of mind.  We do something every day that keeps us in the loop with Nature.  We have weeding in the plans and moving some plants around. A
