When one goes into the woods, it is a way of finding oneself again. When the only sounds are a flowing creek and chirping birds, it awakens something deep inside oneself. An immeasurable feeling of peace overcomes the soul. Looking up at the canopy- the beauty of the light through the leaves as they dance in the breeze-brings both happiness and humbleness with the realization of the grander of the earth. The air itself is somehow sweeter in the woods- a coolness- a freshness that cannot be felt anywhere else. All seems right with the world in the woods. In an overwhelmingly emotional and spiritual way, going to the woods feels like going home.
