A wetland or a grassland Aug 3, 2013

The texts would be about the birds, both resident and migratory, the plants and the people who live in those environments. What it's like on a lovely spring day but also in the middle of winter. Species, food chains, production, climate change, ecotourism; land rights, indigenous people, migration, wildlife trafficking...

I'd have to make a big effort to keep up with so much work in such wonderful surroundings.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Definitely in a castle, unless on a beach past August, like September through May Aug 3, 2013

I might be easier though to write about the sea than about a castle. Nevertheless, I love castles, naturally, especially the ones built before the 1600s. In a castle, you can also always write about a ghost, which might be an advantage.

Forest Aug 3, 2013

A green forest in a more temperate climate, i.e. not in a jungle, with animals and birds, old oak trees.

Forests, woods, birds Aug 3, 2013

You could try the forests in the Pacific Northwest in the U.S. The shades of green are many.

But you can also switch for the woods in Wisconsin or Ohio between May and October. I love birds, and birdsongs make me think and wonder...and perhaps write about them.

Another option -- on a fishing vessel, or a scientific exploration ship. Aug 3, 2013

Not on a cruse ship, though. Perhaps somewhere in the Antarctic.

In a space ship because... Aug 3, 2013

...from there I could see everything! And still be far away to "miss" all the nasty things taking place here, no hunger, no floods, not wars.... what a relief that would be. (If it was only happening on earth as well; peace at last and food for all.)

Well except for the oceans' floor, but I'm not keen on fish anyway.

In fact, seeing our Blue Planet from up there is a dream I've been having ever since I was a little girl.
