Nature My Best Friend

   Since I was a little girl , I loved nature it has been my best friend. long walks on nature trails, standing out at night looking deep into the valley of space seeing  millions of shimmering stars                     against the black backdrop has inspired me.   Nature      gave me the strength to endure the problems of life as they appeared I feel        a magic surround me      as I see cloud patterns or a sunrise or         sunset It's as though someone puts their arms around me and says I love you.I'm lucky to live in city next to lake Michigan. You can't imagine the thrill of walking next to the pounding waves. It feels wonderful. Please take time to commune with nature you will feel stronger and in time learn we all are a part of a great miracle!!!

I wish I could have the same experience. I live in a very dense city where there aren't any wide spaces for miles. I can't even access the park from my apartments. I spend the majority of my time inside :/

That was beautiful, I want to see the places you desribe, the valley under the stars.

you can just walk outside tonight and look up. That place you want to see is there waiting for you it will always be there waiting for you. So try it tonight just find a quite piece of earth to sit or stand on.There is something I didn't mention in the above piece, autumn is also an especially good time to catch the constellation Orion in the eastern sky and the Big Dipper more towards the west as it is slowly sinking towards the horizon. Take a good look at both of them especially the Big Dipper. Study it's design and think of the odds of stars slowly over the eons moving together to form the shape of a pot. Really think about it and then look at Orion the great hunter look to at it's intricate design and the odds of stars just coming together and forming such an illustrious pattern. In my mind I like to think some phenomenal force created the design of those constellations and flung them across our earth's night as way of saying HELLO PEOPLE OF EARTH HERE ARE MY TWO GIFTS TO YOU TO LET YOU KNOW YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
so my friend acidbrain enjoy you quest of the heavens tonight and every clear night and may the stars help you find peace and wisdom. take care

Wow, you remind me of myself. I wanted to see Michigan, sounds beautiful. But you're right. The big things is above our heads available for everyone, everywhere.

What roof is more beautiful than the roof of the nightsky, extending out into infinity? It's truly mindblowing to look back through spacetime in the woven fabric of the cosmos. It's like I can feel how the invisible threads of the universal flow of information connect me with the universe. In some beautiful way it's not only to look at "dead starlight", of that which does not still exist (which is amazing), we face the light from the days of our non-existence, we stare death into its eyes. And it's beautiful.

U r rite. Me too being a nature lover can understand it. U know wt I like to lose in nature whenever I get chance. It gives me pleasure which cant b described in words. I have found that some of my nice EP frnds live in the lap of nature bt I m nt so lucky. Smtimes I feel I were so lucky like them to live with nature.

It is so wonderful to hear from another who also finds peace with nature. I had no idea that there is such a large community of people like this. It just inspiring and touching to hear people speak from their hearts for it is a language I TRULY know and understand. Blessing to you Orionnights!!


So true:)
