    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    A Little Secret

    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...

    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.

    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...
