“Each day brings a new surprise – another songbird’s voice, new buds emerge, and, finally, wildflowers. Marsh marigolds first, then violets. The drowsy flight of butterflies and bumblebees. Awaken, sleepyheads. The bewildered emergence of the little furry ones. They stare at me with curiosity, and then skitter away, remembering that my kind is to be feared. The early petals wither while new blooms unfurl. Each one more flamboyant than the last.” Julie Riso, Beneath the Winter
Welcome to Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
I am your host Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
I am delighted and thrilled that my blogger friend and writer, Julie Riso, from her blog “Wish I Were Here” and I are connecting Vancouver and Northern Michigan for a discussion on awakening to nature.
Julie has created a space that welcomes authentic conversations. She writes that many years ago, she chose to follow an unmarked path – the one filled with detours, dead ends, hitchhikers, kitschy roadside attractions, and unexpected destinations. I knew immediately that I found a kindred spirit.
“Wish I Were Here” is Julie’s travel memoir that explores her journeys through place and time. She inspires readers to live their personal stories and to recognize the connection to nature and all creatures who share our world.
I invite you to put the kettle on and add to this exciting conversation on Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you for joining Julie and me on Tea Toast & Trivia.
And a special thank you, Julie for sharing your insights, your journey, your connection to nature. You have inspired me, and I know that you have encouraged listeners to recognize that they are forever linked to nature. Earth is our home. It is where our story begins and becomes interwoven within the fabric of all that has come before and all that will come after.
I invite you to meet up with Julie on her blog Wish I was Here. It is a place that inspires us to pause, listen to our hearts, discover our dreams and walk with nature in peace with ourselves and with all who walk this earth.
