Creative Mornings | Wilderness
June 17, 2022 at8:15 am - 10:00 am
We travel to the edges of our known world — to wander, to lose ourselves, to commune with the wilderness. Dappled light dripping in through the forest canopy, insects buzzing as feet squelch through wetlands, inhaling the hot dry air and endless skies of desert, we long for this. Some of us seek enchantment and estrangement here. Some of us call it home.
We do not exist apart or separate from the wild. In her meditation on trees, poet Grace Paley writes, “we are like any greengrowing machinery / riding the daylight route / into darkness.” The wilderness lives within all of us, the rhythms of our bodies tethering us to the natural world.
When you think of the wilderness, what comes to mind? Moose, bears, ticks and snakes? The wilderness can be a lot of fun, and it can also be scary as heck. Kelly Thibodeau, owner of Squarely Social, shares her journey as a mid-career corporate employee turned creative entrepreneur. Get insight and practical tips to tap into your creativity, explore your wild side and chart your adventures!
