There are two apple trees in a meadow I go to every spring...
I make it a point to get done with work early, around noon and take the afternoon off by myself.
I get a bottle of champagne (in this case prosecco) and a picnic lunch and just hang out under this apple tree for several hours.
In the meadow, there is view of a small mountain range. I just look and listen for awhile....to the birds and crickets.
Bring some books.....some snacks.
Pop open the bubbly...and climb the apple tree.
Joseph Campbell: "You must have a room or certain hour for so a day, where you don't know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don't know who your friends are, you don't know what you owe anybody, you don't know what anybody owes you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first, you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something will eventually happen."
