    I think that this spot would be a beautiful

    I would love to live in a cabin by the lake

    for even 3 months of the year. There is something about nature that is just healing to the body, mind and soul. To wake up to the sun rising over the lake. I would just sit with my coffee and enjoy as a family of ducks waddle along the shore or watch the pelicans fishing for...

    Actually, I already do live there.

    I have just enjoyed watching a most beautiful sunset over the lake. The crystal clear water is perfectly still, except for a pair of lake loons passing by. In the distance, a bard owl is calling to its mate. It is going to be a clear night, with millions of twinkling stars. And...

    It is springtime here now,

    in my paradise in the northern lands. The lake ice has melted, and the pure spring water creates a beautiful waterfall, rushing down from the stream that feeds the lake, the afternoon sun creating a rainbow of colors. The water is actually quite warm, compared to the still nippy...

    it sucks because I live in the city.. I want to learn how to hunt and fish, I want to learn about plants and their abilities. I just feel at peace being outside, there's no church in the wild..

    I really don't know why,

    its perhaps because when i see this kind of scenery in pictures or movies i feel like connected with this view, looks so peaceful, with nature surrounding you, no noise or other kind of pollution. A place of peace.
