Working in nature

May 12, 2010

If you have possibility – and no pollen allergy – you can chose to spend more time in nature. Myself I chose to work in the park when the weather is nice. Instead of voluntarily trap myself in an office I chose fresh air and peace. I bring a foldable chair, laptop, a blanket to wrap around my waist, windproof jacket, organic fruits (lunch), some water, and wear dark clothes for best screen visibility and heat absorbtion. It’s relaxing to listen to the wind in the trees and singing birds. I also find that I can focus better on writing without internet access. Maybe it’s anti-social, but hey, I also work in coffeshops, when the sun is gone. Usually I hit the park after lunch, when it’s a bit warmer. I have found two really good spots where nobody disturbes me. There I let the sun warm my body and watch the young green leaves grow. There I watch animals like mice, roe deers, birds, bumblebees and flies. I have found a spot with micro climate, where the cold wind hardly reach. It’s like a bowl in a small valley with exotic flowers. When the sun sets and my bum feels sore I switch off the laptop and pick some weeds for dinner. Back home I put on my running gear and hit the trails. Yesterday’s run was very good: fast, tough and beautiful. However, I got really dissappointed to find lots of picknic garbage on top of one of my favourite hills. Sometimes I wonder what’s wrong with people.

      Yes it’s indeed lovely and you get very tanned hands:-) With one extra battery I can work 7 hours, which is more than enough. The sun refelction is n’t any problem since I only write, and don’t need to watch pictures. But wearing dark clothes on top helps to reduce refelection.
