Calm after the Storm

This entry was contributed by Jasmine Hinton as part of my “Into Nature” guest blog series celebrating the reissue of my book, The Ancient One.

The Ancient One, which I read in the fifth grade, was the first long chapter book I ever read. It was also the first book I loved, and propelled me into the world of storytelling and appreciating the magic within the pages. When I look at the sunrises, the trees against the light, the wind singing in the evenings and splashing fishes in the lakes, I remember this book.


Nature is such a wonder and we should always care for this amazing planet and the creatures that live on it. This photo was taken after the storm Goliath stranded my family and I in Texas. We were finally on out way home in the evening the next day when we saw this wonder.
