    I'm not religious. Not

    even spiritual. But some religious people describe themselves as feeling humbled in what they believe to be the presence of their deity. I wasn't sure what to think of that and mostly wrote it off as just rambling, since the people saying it really seemed arrogant. However...

    I think nature is magic how every thing is

    created then evolves and changes. All plants and animals have learned how to survive. Why cant man do the same and stop destroying the planet if we want to kill our selves ok but why should every thing else have to suffer. The sooner man is off this world the better

    Magnificent Snowflakes

    I'm amazed at the number of people who live here in northern New England and despise winter. It's a real head-scratcher when some years winter can be nearly 6 months long. These folks spend half the year -and half their lives- in a funk because it's more often than not cold or...

    Nature's Awesome Healing Powers

    Unspoiled nature makes me feel small

    and humble, and in a world of extreme multi-tasking, giving up control in a big, dense forest can be so, so perfect sometimes.

    A Relief

    Sometimes I look up at the stars and lose myself; then other times, I have noticed the smallest flower beneath my feet, or followed the path of a tiny red ant. Nature is really something isn't it? So big, yet so small; so violent, yet so peaceful. So infinite, yet so finite...

    Nature is something I'm close to.

    When I'm in nature I can feel the living things around me. There is so much life tucked back in a small canyon or hiking trail. When I'm most alone I'll find myself hiding out in nature where I can find peace and be alone.
