Sometimes I Forget to See

It is so beautiful this morning. We've had 3 days of rain which is great for the pine trees but gets a little gloomy for the spirit. Sitting here in bed with my coffee and laptop looking out the window into the forest of pine trees the sun is shinning through making long bar like shadows on the pine needle carpet. It is so quite except for the birds I can hear one of my puppies snoring in the other room. Last night a friend reminded me how lucky I am to live here. I forget sometimes but I'm remembering this morning. Thank you .

I live in the woods/moutains of Maine. Life is tuff here, not much money, BUT would not trade it for the world.

I love living in the mountains. When you're alone in the mountains, it seems a lot less lonely than when you're alone in the city, doesn't it?

I remember living in the mountains. The air is so crisp and clean. I miss those days. You are indeed fortunate. I now live in the valley but on a 16 acre parcel of land that is secluded. It's not as beautiful as the mountains but it is an island of peace in the middle of suburbia.
