    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Mother Earth

    As Always..

    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...
