    There's nothing like going to a park on a warm

    sunny day sitting under a tree reading an intense book that just takes you to another place!!! Enjoy the quiet times in your life, they bring revelation :)

    My dream is to live in a cozy cottage in the

    woods, surrounded by the sounds of nature and wildlife. No obnoxious, noisy, inconsiderate neighbors and their screaming brats.

    At the tops of the trees in the forest.

    So peaceful. I could spend the day just sat here.

    It's why I bought a place WAY out in the

    country, surrounded by forests. It's where I go to 'get away' from it all and just meditate. My dog sniffs and prowls, but she never goes too far away, and always responds immediately. That's why I love German Shepard's. So easy to train. So devoted. Katt

    I don't just like them,

    My Dad always brought me into the woods

    for walks with our dog. I think it really shaped who I am today. Being somewhere quiet in the woods is one of my favorite places because I always think about those walks with my Dad where the tiny trail we walked on seemed like an endless universe. It reminds me of playing in...

    I am the only child of two older parents.

    Since my parents had me later in life, my aunts and uncles were already grandparents with their children having children of their own. So I really did not have playmates until on Sundays (at church) and when I went to school. At first, I envied my classmates who had siblings...

    Places where I can sit

    An opportunity for me to think,

    to clear my mind, reflect. Sometimes in these places, I don't even wanna think. I just want the beauty of it all to control me & my emotions. A place of solute.

    It's always nice to get away from the city

    I'm using the topic to remind myself.

    LOL I found my culprit. I think. Could be wrong, but I think. Too many ideas. Too many things I want to try and a list of things holding me back, not least of which is my own fear of failure. I was outlining plans to my father last weekend and as usual, he took them as fiction...

    Serene, quiet and secluded

    so that I can get into my mood and rid myself of all inhibitions. I prefer isolation and natural kind of my own little world, a friend only one would be nice!

    So hubs has left for work

    and I'm sitting on my porch chain smoking; a cup of coffee in hand, dog at my feet, watching a spring storm slowly roll in and listening to the birds heralding in a new day. I think my joy is coming back. I think I will be okay.

    My home is a true sanctuary.

    .. People that visit often comment about the mood and feeling's they get while being here. It's not always quiet, I crank the music for a shower, wife cranks it to cook.....so it's not a library or anything. There's just a sense of peace and tranquility that is the hallmark of...

    Wasn't sure where to post this

    but just wanted to post that I really like this website. Really chilled out compared to fb and twitter and other places. Feels like people just hostile all the time over on those sites. Much more chilled out here, in my experience at least.

    I love to get out of the town,

    somewhere quiet. Where I can't hear the buzzing of chatter or cars. The aura of stress is left behind. Replaced by chirping of birds, the whispers of the river and the whimsical hum of the wind. Among the trees where I don't have to deal with dull daily situations. There is no...

    A good place to sit and just be.

    No thoughts. No worries about the day. No regrets. Just being. To feel, for that short time, a way to be close to the infinite. For me it's to be closer to God. To feel his presence and see his creation. To be in the peace and to finally just... Be still.

    Where my thoughts can gather.

    Where I am just what I am. Nothing more and nothing less. No judgement, no worries just me. The surrounding beauty fills me with peace and hope. Where you can just breath in what is around you. Freedom at its best.

    I found a lot of serenity on my last bicycle

    Many years ago, I spent a great deal of time in

    the woods. During the colder months, I would wake early in the mornings, about an hour before sunrise. I would dress comfortably and weather-appropriate. Just as the Sun was beginning to peek above the trees, I would make my way into the woods. Sunlight would shine brilliantly...

    Sometimes I like to sit by graves,

    there no one will disturb me if they think I'm mourning over the loss of someone. Sometimes I go into the church near them and sit on one the benches at the back, when no one is there and just think. I don't want to be disturbed, not even seen, therefore the least liked places...

    I often escape into the woods.

    It's peaceful, it's quiet. I enjoy the time to myself, away from people. Nature is beautiful. The trees dance with the breeze, the birds sing, and the stream rushes along. I feel complete when I'm alone in the woods, like I'm where I belong. It clears my mind, eases my pain, and...

    I'm blessed to live in an area of serene
