    No Other Place For Me

    To him who has once tasted the reckless independence, the haughty self-reliance, the sense of irresponsible freedom, which the forest life engenders, civilization thenceforth seems flat and stale. Its pleasures are insipid, its pursuits wearisome, its conventionalities, duties...

    I love being in the forest. I love the serenity and magic of the place. I feel safe there. My dream is to have a small, wooden hut in the woods, one day. Waking up to the smell of pine trees seems such a wonderful idea. Drinking morning coffee outside, in the summer, letting my...

    I grew up in the woods,

    and sometimes I wonder if I left a piece of myself there! Every time I'm in the woods amongst the trees and the birds and the other fauna, I feel more alive than any cityscape could ever make me~

    My Anuts House

    My aunt has woods and every time I go over to her house I spend the day in the woods... Hunting, searching for deer with my cousin (not a wolf) but its still fun

    It's just so peaceful being alone with your

    thoughts feeling the wind in your hair with all that space and the fresh air feeling like nothing else matters. Drizzling a little so your face feels that tingly feeling of the raindrops and not pouring so you'd slip. Ahh I can't think of a better place for a brief escape from...

    My Heaven

    My Heaven is the scent of green leaves dripping with dew drops, The scent of pine trees in the crisp moring air, The scent of moist tree bark after it rains. My Heaven is the sound of birds gently singing their good-morning songs, The beautiful sound of wind whispering through...

    Well I Live There.

    My Way Is The Woods Way

    I spend as much time as possible in the woods. It's my peaceful place. Everything else goes elsewhere when im alone in the woods.

    Ain’t Nothin’ Better

    Ain’t nothing better Than a walk in the woods, Crunching leaves, The birds, Smell, Very atmospheric, The sun occasionally breaking through, The track winds on, Through the woods, Wish it would never end.

    There are some woods near

    where I live that are not only beautiful, relaxing, and teeming with wife life, but they also satisfy my need to sometimes hide. You walk in so many paces and people can't see you, a bit further and people cannot hear you. The light gets darker and the the traffic and people hum...

    I'm somewhere I've never been before.

    I flew to Michigan. The wind is really blowing & this place is surrounded by massive, leafless trees. Just curled up in bed enjoying nature humming a lullaby to me thru the trees. Makes me want a Tiny House or cottage in the middle of the woods.

    Secret Life Of Trees / The Magic Forest

    Woods and forests are magical places. There are secrets hidden in the trees , the undergrowth , beneath the soil , and under rocks. I believe that woods and forests , and especially trees , have a secret life all their own. They talk to each other. They laugh. They sing and...

    Where The Mushrooms Live

    You can find so many interesting types of mushrooms in the forest. I used to take my books and magnifier and sheets of white paper out in the woods with me to make spore prints and so on. There are many other really cool aspects of venturing in the woods.

    Let me start by saying I am not particularly the outdoorsy type. Sure, I like going outside but I am not down for camping or stuff like that. But I know that when I go off to college I will sure miss all the smells. I won't be able to randomly go out into the woods. The smell of...

    If I Just Close My Eyes, I Can Hear The Rustle Of The Pines

    When chaos is all around, friends far away, and more pain in life than ever imagined, the comfort and solace of the woods is a balm to the soul.  I grew up in the midwest surrounded by valleys of trees in every imagineable shape and size.  The autumn was a blaze with...

    The Glade

    the trees are sentinels guarding the secrets buried beneath the forest floor. while wild flowers whisper subtle hints of what might be found, birds screech; warning of dangers which may befall any who dare approach. and the secrets are safe; for now
