The Weekly Landscape 2.7.21

February – Black History Month, Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day – and butterflies. Yes, this is the heart of Winter, but know that butterflies are on the horizon. Some food for thought this week:

BYGONE DAYS – A look at one individual’s thoughts about the unfair treatment of indigenous peoples and overall culture of the American West. This is also an excellent example of one person’s interaction with Nature, a fine piece of Creative Nonfiction involving the writer interacting with their environment. https://www.altaonline.com/books/fiction/a34839129/john-freeman-butchering-the-mythic-west/

NOWADAYS – Discover this short podcast dedicated to Nature. This is Nature::Spirit presented by Priscilla Stuckey. https://naturespirit.buzzsprout.com/1097864/7643386-committing-to-your-hunger

SCENIC OUTLOOK – from the brilliant mind of Seth Godin who specializes in marketing and all things culture-related, a mention of how ideas happen in this comparison to butterfly hunting. https://seths.blog/2020/11/butterfly-hunting/

I hope you find some butterflies this week.

Keep writing forward,
