Ecotherapy reminded me of my childhood, where I was used to fields and red barns. I don’t think that life is simpler than an urban one. Yet it is closer to nature and with less manufactured things around you. It is healthier and if you strive to be one, it does help you to be a poet.
I believe that even if you are writing nonfiction, a short story or a novel, there is a poem rolling around in your psyche lighting up the words to use like a pinball machine.
