    There is a song I remember being played by my parents - "You fill up my senses like a night in a forest" - it is such a wonderful image. Firstly, I do love gazing at trees and how they can embrace one another in a roof, as though they are holding hands, when their...

    Very Much So. ...

    Very much so. I love the sounds. I have never been a city girl. I cannot stand all the hustle and bustle. It worries me that many forest's are disappering under the word,"Progress'. We need the trees to breathe, so plant one today...please.!!

    Like Nowhere Else

    The soundscape of the forest has an effect on me like nothing else. There isn't stillness nor is there silence as such, but there is a huge absence of all the noise that surrounds life amongst others. The force of that absence of noise is so overwhelming, so healing, my ears feel...

    I'd love to lay on the forest floor

    and stare up at the stars, confused over which I admire more... You, or nature.

    Psyche And Spirit

    I once watched a documentary about Celtic history called, most befittingly, The Celts.  It was interesting, especially since I have long had an interest in the mythologies and histories of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.  One thing that was suggested, however, truly caught my...

    Snowed all day on Monday

    but most of it had melted leaving a 1-2 inch layer over everything. I ran trough the underbrush. sliding down the hill into the untamed valley below. The snow was crunchy. That would make it difficult to sneak up on the wildlife. But it also gave me directions... Their...

    It's An Escape

    Whenever the world gets the best of me and I feel like the universe is infact ending, I find that upon entering any thick wooded area commonly known as a forest helps me relax. Different people realize this relaxation in different ways, but for me it is being in the forest and...

    The Forest

    It is my Valium.  It soothes me, calms me, and I miss it like a lost lover.  I hope to go tomorrow.  I need fresh air and breezes, possible swimming and meditation.  It's been too long, and I really need to be immersed in nature right now.

    My Little Slice Of Nature.

    I live in a city which is scattered with small forests and has a big forest-park. There are quite a few people who enjoy a stroll in these woods, but somehow you always get the illusion of privacy. The woods are perfect for teenagers who are up to mischief, since they are...

    I absolutely love being in the forest.

    I love the green colours in the spring time and the wildlife everywhere. It's Truly beautiful. The forest is so big and free, you can go anywhere! Sometimes I feel as if the forest is more of my home then my actual house.

    It's peaceful and gives enough seclusion

    for a romantic encounter I've found. I love stripping down to my thong and walking a trail. If I get caught it hasn't been a big deal.

    Rain and Redwoods...looking For More...

    I love all kinds of forests, but especially tropical rainforests.  I've been lucky enough to have gone deep into some virgin rainforests in Central and South America and I get a natural sense of well being when I'm there.  I love the smell, the sounds...even the humid...

    There are multiple reasons I love the forest,

    and most of them are feelings that I cannot put into words. All in all, I love the forest. :)

    i go into the forest quite often near

    where I live. As soon as you enter, the world changes. In summer it is very quiet and lush in there at first, until the creatures get used to you or forget you are there. In winter it is very stark, all those naked branches in the cold. Both experiences make me seem very small...

    I have such a longing for forests and mountains. It is where my heart feels peaceful. I find that I do everything with more passion when I get into the forest. I especially love pine forests; the smell really takes me away.

    I want to live in the deep forest away from the

    city. Where I can live peacefully, live off the land, hunt for my food, have a nice house that looks like a home from Skyrim with a forge for my blacksmithing projects. I would be content, happy, and at peace.

    💫I feel like it's an escape from reality,

    whenever I've been hurt I love to run through the forest because I know I can be free there. No one can judge me or put me down. My favorite thing to do is find a random spot just to sit and listen to all the other creatures in the forest, I think it's just beautiful. It just...

    and just listening to nature, and my own thoughts. Taking my own time, just taking it all in... nothing more peaceful.

    Canadian forest. 10 days or so ago me, my 6 year old son, and 3 buddies took our quads up there and found an old abandoned trail at the edge of my grandpa's land. The trail goes into the forest. We took the trail for about 6 miles and found a lake nobody ever goes to and had a...
