Hiking gets me out of my head and into the wonders of nature. Today I noticed the fabulous color pop of this pale green moth against the bright orangey-red of manzanita bark, and moments like this center and give me resilience that carries into my work. I write about the environment, and all the damage and disasters can be overwhelming. Another thing that helps me is covering actions we can take—and are taking—to protect the world around us.
