    Nowadays, I find myself lured by the sea.

    Whenever I'm at the beach, I'd sit on the sand and close my eyes. All I can smell is the salt in the air, and all I can hear are the waves as they kiss the shore. I can imagine myself in a place far away. I like to think that, some place across the waters, there is someone...

    I recently spent four days in an Italian Sea

    resort and I woke up every morning in time to watch the sun emerge from the sea. I jogged during the birth of the sun but on one morning, I just stood there , and wore my earphones listening to Ennio Morricones' "Gabriels Oboe" from the film "The Mission". I was so in peace and...

    I love hiking up the mountainside behind my

    house through the woods. There are trails back there that lead up to a look out high on the rock face. It looks down the valley to the lake. It is beautiful and quite and most of the year there are hardly any people there. I love hiking up there on my own and just sitting in the...

    If I am in a melancholy mood I'll take Agnes out

    and open the back gate and give her her head. She knows where she wants to go. Across the meadow and through that patch of woods and down to the creek. Quite, peaceful, beautiful. Just my thoughts and the sounds of nature that I love so much.

    I feel like in this face paced society,

    nature is somewhat of a drug to me. I get anxious if I go too long without a good hike or meditate in the woods.

    and the whispering of the trees, looking at the blue sky and watching at the playing of the insects. It makes me feeling the spirit and power of God in every little leave, in every little blade of grass...

    Hiked up a mountain trail over the weekend

    and found some very beautiful pools of water and falls. It was very peaceful. I felt so at home, and although there was not another person for miles. I didn't feel alone. But embraced.

    I am such a major nature junkie.

    Hiking and spending time at the beach are my absolute favorite things in the world to do. There is a certain peace that overwhelms you when you spend time in nature away from all the smart phones and hectic chaos that has become our daily modern lives. It's in those moments that...

    I have stood where the trees bellow their tune

    Under the night of a lightless moon The ground below my pale bare feet Was dark, damp, and rich with peat. I have ventured below a sky so grim Where the vines drape and catch your limb, Guarding the path to dwell within Tangling, snaring those with merit so thin. I have dug...

    Nothing calms me more

    than being alone, away from civilization. And as someone with social anxiety is a welcome break. Maybe I should just run away and live under the stars for the summer :)

    A little fog and green trees.

    Walking my dog in the fall when brown leafs are falling on the ground. Walking to the infinity in an unknown forest/park. Breathing fresh air and feeling the calmness of the nature. I love life.
