Welcome to “Life in the Real World”. The world of humans is such a weird and sometimes confusing place but right outside my door I find the world of nature has a realness to it, an ordinary magic with everyday miracles.
This newsletter will be full of photos and reflections on what nature teaches me every day about beauty, wonder and living in the world. I hope you will find it grounding, meditative, sometimes illuminating and full of genuine curiosity about this strange thing we call Life.
Here are some of my favorite posts:
I’ve been walking in a county park near my home in Kansas City, Missouri for nearly a decade. I’ve heard the term “becoming native to place” and perhaps that’s what I’m doing. I want to know “all my relations” as the native people so beautifully say and I’ve come to know many of their ways, their habits, their attitudes and their beauty. I hope my newsletter offers moments to pause and encourages others to notice all the beings in their own world.
I hope my newsletter conveys a sense of connection, groundedness and that there’s more going on than often meets the eye of media and social media. My intent is to share the beauty and wisdom of nature with all, especially knowing so many do not have access on a regular basis.
My weekly photo essays are free to all users and I offer a paid subscription for those that want to support what I’m doing and receive regular “drops of beauty” in their email. I am genuinely grateful for all readers and supporters!
No spam, ever. No click-bait. Just honest reflections and photos of my world.
Stay up-to-date and connected
