There Is No Stillness, Yet There Is Peace...

I love to lay on a blanket in the woods feeling the sun's heat warm me as it is filtered through the leaves of the trees. I have the coolness of the shade to cool me and keep my temperature balanced so I am neither too cool or too warm. I lay there with my eyes closed, listening to the shuffle of the leaves in a light breeze. There is a creek nearby and I can hear the water flowing and lapping softly against the bank. Not a soul is close enough to harass me with the trivial matters of day to day stresses. My only danger is falling asleep from the calmness I feel.

I forgot how much I miss this. I will have to go out and enjoy nature a bit more often.
