I Like Serene and Quiet Places

    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.

    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...

    At seven o'clock in the morning,

    I am in my classroom. The clock is ticking, the sun is peeking from over shorter brown trees. I walk around my classroom, with my mug of coffee in my hand, making sure textbooks are where they should be, posters on alliteration, metaphors, similes, personification, first-person...

    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 enjoy to go hiking in the woods,

    walk by a river, climb a mountain, breathe fresh air, meditate in motion. There might not be wifi in the woods, but I find a better connection.

    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

    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!

    I wish I had enough money to buy a piece of

    quiet. Monday looms and, once again, the loudness of the necessary looms. A still piece of time, where I can enjoy simple thought (without interruption). Is that too much to ask?

    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.

    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.
