    On a bus. In California.

    Headed South. It's early in the morn. Everyone's sleeping &/or quiet. I'm perusing EP... Intermittently gazing out the windows. The sun is rising beautifully over on my left... The clouds are sprinkled exquisitely upon my right. The orchards & the fields are calming...

    As I walk to school during spring,

    the street is lined up with trees full of bright light purple flowers. There are times when large amounts of petals have fallen and are scattered on the ground, but when you do, you'll feel like you stepped into a fairy tale, even just for a brief moment.

    A tree will be born again by falling seeds with

    no help from man but in the care of dear Sun, protected by silence. Maybe it needs that loneliness and silence in order to focus on the connection with others, as the seed is connecting to the dying leaves that life would feed... what a circle... Only when able to speak...

    When I find a job in the future,

    I want to live in a place which would be a bit remote. I'm so old fashioned, but the thought of living in apartments in big cities does not interest me at all. I want to settle somewhere peaceful and simple.

    one morning I just woke up from sleep

    and opened the door of my room on the side of balcony. and the sun rays were spread everywhere around me giving it look like giving sparkle to each and every thing. I felt so alive and motivated that day .. I captured a photo of it and still cherish that moment with me... ;)

    Bare feet were made for nights like this,

    when the rain seems to fall from the stars themselves. There is no thunder, only distant lighting, but it is friendly enough. The moisture clings to the warm summer air, steam rises from the pavement and my feet make short-lived patterns on the puddles. The rain is gentle...

    I'm looking at a dark blue sky.

    Stars shining. A few clouds drifting by. The half moon. And a palm tree.

    Took an afternoon walk in nature.

    What a beautiful day to be out, take in the incredible serenity that only being in the woods can provide. This is my time to relax and focus on my surroundings. A good walk makes me so calm and completely at peace with everything. No chaos, no worries...just beauty and...

    With my coaching duties almost at an end,

    of things. I'm not going to sit here and write about how I appreciate it and blah blah blah, but I would like to say that there is beauty in things, almost everything. You see a picture and some people are like "oh cool the ocean, nice." But there's so much more to things then...

    Sometimes life gives us what we perceive

    as being tumultuous and restless to where we know not which direction to turn. Oh the irony of life...on the one hand, we like feeling settled and in the comfort of where we are and yet on the other, there can be a restlessness searching for that which isn't in our lives...

    It may be well below freezing out there,

    but there was something refreshing about letting the cool breeze rush past me as I stood at my kitchen window. There's a small patch of lawn with a few 50+ foot tall pine trees just outside my kitchen. The lawn is covered in snow that, except for a few dead leaves, branches and...

    I really do. I love being by the sea

    and hearing the waves and the feel of the sand. I love looking for shells, or unusual stones. I went canoeing once (not an activity I would normally take part in) and I found myself loving watching the world change around me ... the water, the river banks, the wildlife...

    Nature is so peaceful.

    I just love walking in the woods when its quiet and peaceful. I love watching birds. My parents are bird watchers and so am I. We have seen very rare birds. Nature is awesome. I have seen deer and moose. My family go on vacation in Maine in the summer. Nature is truly amazing.

    As I took my daily walk,

    I began to think how much I have learned over the past few years. I have learned about the insincerity of others, and conversely those who are upfront and and have a genuine heart. I have learned about who I am, what it most important at this stage in life, who I can depend upon...

    If I could live by a lake.

    . I would watch the sunrise light up the water, I would watch the moon's reflection create crystals, and watch the sunset create a beautiful painting.

    In an ideal world I would live in a wooded area

    with nearby trails and wildlife close by. Nothing compares to the sense of peace and tranquility you get when surrounded by nature. The next best thing for me is to just simply be outdoors. Even surrounded by homes and cars going by occasionally, I get a sense of relief by...

    Sitting on the beach taking in all of the sights

    The world was awash with grey

    as I headed towards the trees and the sound of water. The air was warm and still, the hush broken only by the mournful calls of a carrawong amongst the sally wattles. My hair was clipped high above my neck, my heavy dress swayed lazily against my calves to the movement of my...

    So on Christmas Day,

    after a large meal and before the sun retreated for the night, I took a walk in the forest next to my house. The leaves were knee deep in spots, the air crisp and cold, the sun beaming off my back. With each step through the crunchy leaves I smiled. Despite all of my whining...

    watch the waves crashing the shore or cute puppies or kitties. You might not become happy but you will find peace

    After a long, painful Monday at work I came home

    and tossed some charcoal on the grill. Gas is a lot faster when feeding my starving belly, but charcoal is better for my sanity. As I sit on my deck and stare out into the prairie I can't help but smile. A cricket chirps behind me, a hawk screams from above, and the trees and...
