Default HYCCT1231 A Walk in the Woods

Challenge Title: A Walk in the Woods
Hostess: Understandblue aka Lydia
Keyword: HYCCT1231
Date: Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

I walk every day. A long, long walk. And sometimes I geocache which makes something I love even more fun. I love being outside. I love the peace it brings to my day, I love the solitude, I love the birds and the animals I see, and I love all the hidden green spaces in my town.

I think one of the most difficult things about being in the hospital is being cut off from nature, and that is the inspiration for my challenge. I want you to bring all the majesty and beauty of the outdoors to a lady who may be stuck inside for a while while she's not feeling well.

For this challenge use any outdoorsy inspiration. I am including some pictures from my daily walks which you may also use if you'd like, but just let your imagination and your environment be your guide.

Thank you all for being here this month - it means so much to so many, and I'm so grateful for your art, your enthusiasm, your empathy and your time. You've made October so special for all of us at Splitcoast. xo.
