    I did when I was a child.

    ..then did the city corporate thing for a long time, and became caught up...now I am back in this line of thinking.

    I think it's a more complete peace.

    Indoors, I can feel peaceful in an old library or a candlelit room. It's a cozy and comforting peace. Outdoors, it's a peace that walks hand in hand with freedom and connection. Exhilarating and soothing all at once. Alive. Me.

    It's just one of those things you need to

    experience to actually understand. You get frustrated with everything that's going on, so you go on a walk, and you find a park or a forest. You then climb a tree, and see the wonder beyond the world below. Ahh. The fresh air that the trees give off. The sounds of non-human life...

    What Am I Missing?

    The evening is my favourite time of day. Watching the sunset gives me a sense of calm that's immeasurable and perfect. There's this one place I like to go to watch sunsets. It's a train bridge that goes right across the river to I climb down and sit above the water, maybe have a...

    I am whole, energized by the beauty,

    stimulated by the force. It's my magic, my home, my love, my tranquility. Nothing feels better than being completely alive and connected to the raw beauty in nature. I get high trail running on a solitary trail run, feel absolutely magnificent on top of a stand up paddle board...

    After an hour of snow blowing I should be

    completely exhausted but I'm not! Minus the roaring hum of my mammoth snow blower it was so peaceful to be outside. The good news is, there is another 6 + inches coming and the wind is screaming at a good pace, so I will get to return to the peaceful outdoors soon enough...

    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...

    In the Summer, my family & I used to go on

    picnics in the mountains. I loved it. It's peaceful there & it takes your mind off of everything that is wrong in your life at that moment. It doesn't seem as big or as horrible as you first thought it was. I used to be more of a homebody, but now I need to be outside at...

    There is nothing that touches my soul

    and brings such joy to every fibre of my being than nature. Sunlight filtering through trees, white clouds against a blue sky, bird song, the sound of a creek winding its way over smooth pebbles, rain on the roof. Our world can be so amazing.

    Ruffled leaves adrift on the floor of the

    Today was a day that did not readily invite my

    A tree will be born again by falling seeds with

    I love how I can walk outside

    and have the fresh air relax me, trees and such to look at and take my mind off things. I really do believe that nature is for the spiritual and for inner peace.

    It's pretty simple to see

    why I like nature. It was here before me, and will be there long after me as well. While humans(and out cities) are noisy, obnoxious, and irritating the outdoors always has a quiet mystery to it. The woods will carry on in tranquility until humans intrude. Stones lay where they...

    House Sparrows And The Cheese Burritto

    This is precisely the reason I "chase the wind.
