    We had been to Pescadora beach today.

    It was cloudy and v windy with a hint of sunshine at times. Just then a lovely couple came looking for a lost sea lion pup. We too joined them in the search and not very far, we found a weak, abandoned sea lion pup. It's hind body was very skinny and bony. It looked like it was...

    A Fleeting Moment Of Serenity

    It's nice to just go down by the lake and forget about everything that's happening in your life and in the world. Just focus on yourself a little bit, reflect, relax and partake in a beautiful fall day! Life has a few simple pleasures, but this is one of them!

    The Experience Of Walking Outdoors

    It's very beautiful outside tonight. I always think it's beautiful outside at nighttime though. I live in a part of the city where there are so very many trees, and a couple streams, and woodsy areas and little animals about. The sky is open and uninterrupted by tall buildings...

    went for a short walk today.

    Sometimes I feel like it holds all the answers

    to every single question you have. One only needs to stop and listen. And the calm that you experience when you truly connect with nature is something wonderful.

    Red lights. Atop windmill towers.

    Far away. Light traffic. On a state highway. But crickets. And a lonely train horn. Miles away from city lights. The stars wink.

    Sometimes you need to escape the walls

    confining. Yesterday, I went to the boulangerie and took myself for a walk around in Parc Villette, to escape for a while. Sometimes I jump on my bike and ride to the Fôret de Fontainbleau to escape the mundanity of everyday life.

    I took this along the 'nature conservancy'

    trail I walk/jog on. The overcast day was a perfect backdrop for the vibe of it.Like tendrils reaching into the sky. Standing as a silent sentinel to the passage of time.Always thought I'd write a story to go with it, but it never came to me. So, the image speaks for itself...

    My view today =) Idk what it is

    but there's something about nature that brings peace to the mind. Is it the wind blowing gently and softly brushing up against the skin? Is it the birds chirping creating beautiful melodies? Maybe it's basking in the warmth of the sun kissing the skin ever so softly? Idk but...

    Nature is just so much fun,

    and even though I'm not the most physically fit person in the world, who doesn't enjoy a scenic vista and brisk hike? :P I just wish there were more nature-y things to see around Chicago. I want mountains and deserts and giant trees and stuff :P Not just beaches and fields...

    Is this the enemy of my pal?

    ?? Or a lover??? They were a yard apart. On different rocks. Both never moved. Which is very rare out here. They hate people.

    In a special valley. On a gold claim.

    Sick. But the view. Wow. The valley gets little rain. But flowers come from it. And the stars. Wow. Too bad the claim aint mine. And is controlled by egos.

    I really appreciate the difference between

    winter nights and nights in the other seasons. Is a different kind of dark, and the quiet always makes me hold my breath. No chittering insects, the birds and critters are tucked away somewhere hidden, and all the other sounds are muffled and absorbed by the snow. Some nights I...

    The sculpture arboreal.

    As I walked through the gallery of the forest, I observed the sublime form of the trees. Bending, bowing, twisting, stretching, reaching, and fallen.

    My Sanctuary

    There is almost nothing I like more than being outdoors. Working in my garden or walking in the forest restores my soul. I like being a wanderer of the world. I literally feel myself recharge when I step into the forest. I'm fortunate to live close to the woods and it's magical...

    I work for the park service,

    so I spend most of my time outdoors. It's the perfect job for those who want to be out in nature. I get paid to wander through God's creation, watching nature at its best producing flowers and the off spring of new life filling the woods, creeks, and marshes. What a great job

    that nature offers. The weather outside is cool. Refreshing in my eyes. Others may say it's cold, but for me it's perfect. I open the sliding door as I step on the patio. It's been the sane scenery for years that I remember. Not today. Although there's a cool breeze in the...
