In my practice, I spent thirty minutes at Norris Reservation trail and took photographs. I learned about myself and about taking care of the world around us. The practice helped me in increasing my reverence of nature, which helped me examine parts of my life better and be able to realize new things about myself. Normally, nature is something I admire everyday, however, I never give it more than a thought. I am privileged enough to live in a place where nature is all around me. Massive trees surround my house. The woods behind my house have fauna and flora and it is not odd to see deer walking, turkey meandering, or the footprints of some wild animal. Being around nature all the time, I feel familiar with it as I see nature as an everyday part of my life. I walk into paths behind my house most days with my dog and I always see wildlife.

When encountering any situation, the big picture of it all would be overwhelming, but it would be easier to take things step by step. Sometimes it is even more enjoyable to appreciate the little things. Thinking back on this, I learned that even when I feel small or overwhelmed by the weighty expectations, it is possible to accomplish anything. Sadly, I observed small remains of trash in some places because this was a heavily trafficked trail. I observed small wildlife running away whenever I stepped on a branch.

    I always tend to think of the world around me in a romantic way; it’s all for the aesthetics. I am and always have been focused on the artistic value of the landscape. Because of that, the place that influenced me the most was over the course of my freshman year here at UF. I lived over at Trusler Hall, the west side of campus and right outside of our dorm was this set of tables right near a pond. I sat there daily, doing work, and just watched the world go by.…

    It was also a great bonding experience, and one that allowed me to get better at shooting my bow. Although we are not able to do this anymore, because of how hectic and busy our summers are, it is something that I will not forget about for a long period of time. We still continue our hunting tradition, and it has grown into a way for us both to be able to get away from life and spend some relaxing time in the woods. We both have had many experiences where we have been able to harvest deer, but that would not have been possible without the time we spend both in preparation, and time spent in the stand. The process of getting food plots planted, and stands ready to go begins in the spring, continues throughout the summer, and into the fall when the season opens.…
