    Nature Child

    through all the ups and downs in life, it is nature that sustains me, nurtures me and soothes me.Living in the hills, listening to the birds and the wind in the trees, watching the horses cantering around the paddocks..that is the only time i dare to believe in a god.

    To Breathe The Air, And Walk The Earth...

    There are times where Nature is the only place I can find solace. I'll walk through a wood and softly speak aloud about whatever it is thats troubling me. The rocks and trees, they hear my tale with the patience of the very ancient. They do not interrupt. They do not judge...

    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...

    I find that it is when I am strolling through

    my local woods, or out birdwatching or hiking in the beautiful countryside surrounding my city, or just walking by the seashore that I am most at peace. I find that in observing nature and being surrounded by it, by the birds, by the other animals, by the trees, by the flowers...

    I grow tired of society

    and find the ultimate escape in wild nature. Sometimes I stay long enough that I miss hamburgers and flushing toilets. Is there a happy in between, or will I always need to go back and forth?

    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...

    A Place To Think

    Walking up onto the hillside The cool breeze on my face The evening sun low in the sky The call of birds in trees nearby My place to escape to get away from hassles of my day.

    I was walking through the woods today.

    So I could get in touch with the natural world around me and I couldn't help but notice how gorgeous the green leaves are when light dances on the dew that's formed over night

    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...

    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...

    When I'm having a rough day, I can go sit outside and relax. I love to feel the warmth of the sun on my face while the wind plays gently with my hair and the birds sing softly to me. It is just so peaceful and relaxing! nothing in the world compares to the peace I feel in that...

    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...

    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...

    Maybe it is the colors

    that mesmerize me, the sounds that sing to me, or the smells that lift me, whatever it is, nature always brings me peace. I find that being away from civilization, deep in the mountains, or desert, is refreshing. The pureness of nature is almost tangible. It is a medicine for...

    Birds chirping out my window I love that.

    The shade of a tree in the summer heat with a good paper back book on my lap. The smell of flowers and a clear blue sky. Making shapes out of the clouds. A dip in the lake or the warm salt water. Sand between my toes. Sunrises with the moon still in the sky. Like the night won't...

    I love the seasons change.

    .the fall leaves that are laying on the grass symbolizes that summer is over. I enjoy hearing the crickets and seeing grass hoppers early mornings. The rain is the best, it really calms me.

    The nature is the only one

    where I can escape from all my problems. Sitting down on the top of a hill and watching sunsets, walking through the forests and to inhale the fresh, clear air - that´s how the peace comes back to me.

    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...

    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...

    I Talk To The Wind

    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...

    Nature Is a Lovely Symphony

    I love to go on hikes and just sit amongst the trees listening to the sound of the leaves rustling in the wind, the flapping of a bird's wing and the crunching of dry leaves in the Fall under my feet.  Whatever I'm feeling, whatever I'm going through - being in nature has...

    Mother Earth
