Combining the knowledge of a pocket almanac with the freedom offered by a blank notebook page, this guided nature journal will motivate you to explore your surroundings in depth. Quick sketches of cloud formations, plant structure, and animal anatomy open up your artistic mind, while quotes and writing prompts are scattered throughout for further inspiration. Build a greater awareness of yourself and the world around you as you fill this journal with personal reflections on the raw beauty of nature.
"When you are drawing like this, you have become invisible. Birds fly over your paper. squirrels eat in front of you. Insects hop on your sleeve, plants open and close, the sun shifts, hawks mate over your head--and you watch with great humility because this is happening with you there and with you not there..."
