    Pure Happiness

    I just spent a few hours in nature, listening to the falling snow, tree hugging, watching the sky, thinking and walking with my best friend through the white frozen fields. The wind and the snow falling in my face, the vast space and the deer standing on the horizon, I felt so...

    Nature Is All

    I need to interact with nature on a personal basis very frequently, or I can't seem to regroup my thoughts or feelings. Nature holds all of the extremes - from the strongest to the gentlest...from the quietest to the ear-shattering...the wettest to the most desiccated...it holds...

    Greenwich Park Probably the Best Chill Out Spot In the World

    When I am world weary... I go to the park.  Find my favourite spot... lie flat on my back and enjoy the sky.  If I get lucky might seem some squirrels. All that green grass, and the beauty of it makes my soul smile.

    A Little Secret

    I've always loved to be outdoors, ever since I was a child. I would play in the surrounding woods with my neighborhood friends in the forts our parents help build, my dad took me to the spots where he used to play battlefield and show off rocks he had splattered with red paint to...

    Backyard Beauty.

    As the moonlight gently kisses the back of my neck,  I contemplate the sweet patterns of lights she dances around the gums and other trees.  The stars shine down on me each one gently blessing me with hope and wonder.  It is 3am and there is not a soul around except for the...

    I Live In A Magic Forest....

    ...where the wind sings with the trees...hundreds of trees, rocking in the breeze. Where the road is made of dirt and rock and the wildflowers are already beginning to peak out amongst the grasses. It's something I've always wanted: my own land. Raw, pristine, uncut. The...

    Power In The Stillness

    As I learn to heal, I see more and more how much of my strength I draw from nature.  When my therapist asked me to describe to her my perfect safe place, I spoke of a riverbank in the woods, far away from any other people.There is strength to be found, rooted with trees; and...

    Escape

    We all need to escape, even from ourselves at times. I love to meander on an empty beach, hearing the waves caress the beach. I love to roam through a meadow and capture its essence in my mind. I love to be surrounded by tall trees, who remind me I am but a human woman...

    Up In The Mountains

    The other day, a friend posted a story about his recent hike into the mountains, and it reminded me of hikes that my father and I used to take while we lived on Maui. Our home was on a farm, which sat tucked away in a valley within the West Maui Mountains. The road we lived on...

    Is it just me, or does the wind speak? I could sit alone anywhere outdoorsy and just listen. It's as though I communicate telepathically with nature. So many thoughts and ideas just pop up in my head, and I can't help but think it's the wind blowing through the trees doing that...

    Mother Earth

    As Always..

    The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst...

    Nature Is a Lovely Symphony
