Although most of my writing centers around darker themes, I usually feel the most inspired to write after a bright, sunny nature hike. I’m not sure if it’s the dose of fresh air or spotting something unusual, like a tree overtaking a barbed wire fence, but I always come home feeling refreshed with new ideas and motivation.
Fortunately there are many parks nearby for me to recharge at, including Frank Liske Park in Concord, just a town over from Charlotte. I visited early last Sunday, trying to sneak in a refreshing walk before the southern heat and humidity settled in for the day. It was exactly what I needed.
What do you do to recharge?
