“There is scarcely any writer who has not celebrated the happiness of rural privacy, and delighted himself and his reader with the melody of birds, the whisper of groves, and the murmur of rivulets.” ~Samuel Johnson

Yesterday, as I read author Helen Hollick’s blog about the peace and quiet of the countryside near her home in Devon, England – http://chittlehamholtchitchat.blogspot.com/2015/10/ther-peace-and-quiet-of-countryside.html – I was reminded that I needed to post a few shots I'd been saving from a trek to the Colorado high country. While markedly different from the serenity of her English scenes, the Colorado landscape displays what each writer knows: Wherever nature is involved, "Writer’s Moments" abound. Spending time with nature restores almost any writer’s enthusiasm.
As Charles Dickens once wrote, “It is not easy to walk alone in the country without musing on something.” Happy trails, wherever they may lead.
