I have mentioned about how my crazily beautiful environment motivates me to write. But let me put a twist to that saying. What am I actually referring to? Well read this short little post about it. Some my laugh and some of you out there who know me might be able to relate.
As I have mentioned, the surrounding environment of my house is peaceful pretty much all year around. With trees within metres of each other, it is shady but at the same time enough sun to give you that vitamin D that you need on a daily basis. this sort of environment will no doubt motivates and inspires me with my writing. But I am only human, so there is time when I feel like.. sleeping!
You heard right, sleeping! Doesn’t sound productive does it? Well, to be honest no it doesn’t sound productive. But this is something my surroundings make me feel or do!
So there you go. I have shared with you a twist within this post. Many of you out there won’t relate to it. But that’s ok. My posts can be like this, where it is a little random!
As quickly as I wrote this post, as quickly I am calling an end to it.
Nature plays a big part to why I moved to this property by the river years ago. But no way I am saying I am a greenie. I’m a firm believer that nature and human invention can actually go hand in hand. It is the balance that you have to get right to make everything work. Well that is my thought anyway! Each to their own I guess. Since it is my blog, I will be biased and say mixing man made materials and naturally produced stuff can be magic.
This leads into the topic of this post about a semi-man made material called liquid limestone concrete that I’ve decided to install around my water feature. But I did it in such a way that it blends in perfectly with the natural surroundings. After all, I didn’t want to spoil the beautiful natural surrounding. It’s funny how I found this picture that pretty much resemble my backyard:
Anyways, back to this special concrete called liquid limestone. I was told the special features of it makes it a very attractive product. One feature that really stood out for me is the cool touch even during summer.
I must admit, after the addition of liquid limestone in my backyard by the river, it enhanced it quite well. So well that I called up my close friends and family members and recommend that they do the same. Being in Perth, I went with the people that had an established experience working with limestone concrete (link will open in new window). It really doesn’t make any difference if you live in a bustling city or closer to nature, like in my case. I think it’ll suit either environments.
Trees cools down the air but I am also finding that liquid limestone does the same! The two go hand in hand like a treat!
Sitting here underneath the tree in my backyard, I sometimes forget how lucky I am to have a place like this. If you’ve ever visited my place, you’d think it’s a retreat getaway. In fact, my close friends and family said exactly this. So I think I got myself a winner! I am not a photographer, but I will be taking pictures soon to show you visually exactly what I mean.
There’s no surprise that being in this sort of tranquil environment, I found it very easy to write. What’s more, it gives me a relaxed approached – which is evident in my writing style and nature. I am sure that all writers out there can appreciate this. Even if you’re not, I am sure you can relate to it in one way or another.
You know what, this Sunday is amazing. Wishing it goes on forever. Wait, was that a butterfly in front of me as I am writing. Well, what do you know.. it is! I thrive on being spontaneous. So I think I’m turning this laptop off and chasing that butterfly. Until next time…
