It's Where I Belong

I've had jobs that pay much better than what I do now , but  they were inside a box of one kind or another . If there was a window to the outside then I was doomed to dream of being outside , no matter the weather , I just wanted to be out of the box . Now , I am outside in any weather , rain or shine , hot or cold , and while I can ***** about it ( as I often do ) , It's still where I wanna be . Everyday at work , I see the foothills of the Ozarks sweep away the east , the open sky is my only ceiling , and I help grow the plants and trees for people of the middle half of the US who waant to add a little nature to their yard . For pleasure , yup , still outdoors ; doing yardwork , hiking , and staying out of the box . It'll be camping and hiking season soon and I feel the jones to hit the backcountry and live .

I just love to hug the outdoors when I can I go look a a leaf fall from a tree a branch on the ground you give the place a hug from me

The Ozarks? Sounds beautifull

i love your descriptions tanengreen, you really have the eyes and the mind for appreciation of beauty. i bet most people that see what you see just dont notice it like you do. you make it seem so inviting. wish i could work outside too! i have a nice native garden outside my lab window, to look at and dream, and big lizards go there from time to time, so it isnt all bad!<br />
