The Restorative Landscape

I don't think it's a surprise that the landscape is a restorative place. When we're angry or stressed a walk in the garden or woods is just the right medicine. By hiding away in a special place we're able to think more clearly and release the negative emotions.

Interestingly, I have also found this about teaching. No matter what is happening in my life, when I step into the classroom or give a presentation all bad vibes disappear. It's a wonderful restorative process...and ironically, my teaching is about the landscape, so it all comes full circle.
