Where Do You Go?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with MoonDancer Realty, Dillsboro,NC NC# 218097
When life keeps tossing challenges at you from left to right, from behind and in front threatening to make you stumble - do you have images you keep in your mind to help you navigate these obstacles? Where do you go? Some people visualize themselves at the shore smelling salt air, listening to the surf and watching the waves come in and go out.  Others imagine themselves to be rock climbing, boating, dancing, stargazing...we all have something that can bring us comfort and help sort out our thoughts so we can move on through the day and reconcile whatever issues that have materialized in our daily dealings.

My comforting images deal with either water or the woods, the very best though is water and woods.  This photo is of a trail leading to the Woody House in the Cataloochee section of the Great Smokies Mountain National Park.  Although it isn't pictured, there is a huge creek that meanders along this trail.  My idea of Nirvana
What's yours?

Hi Mona,

I really miss the slow walks down a country tree filled lane like your shot.

(sigh) I really do.

Thanks for the memories.

Have a great day in Sylva.

Best, Clint McKie

Mona - Thank you! I needed this today. I am going to look at your picture again while taking deep breaths. This will keep me from injuring anyone near me today!

Counting your blessings and thinking of others means you are full of joy. So when something bumps you, rubs you a little against the grain you take it all in stride. Consider it all joy and are at peace. Other people are not carbon copies of us. Situations that strain are a test. Always take the high road and not consider anything personal when others are not in tune to the same way of thinking. Celebrate, embrace differences.

Clint, you need to find yourself some tree lined walks and quick!

Peter, glad I was helpful...guess we have this in common - the love of a woodsy walk.

Seems like that would be a peaceful and serene walk, but I agree with Roger. The beach is the place for me!

Mona.  Awesome photo.  Sometimes we just need to escape reality for a bit to clear our head and gather our thoughts.  My special place involves surf and sand.  Transforms me everytime.

Good morning Mona. Thoughtful and lovely. Picture is great and makes me want to jump into the screen. For me it is a trail like this in the Berkshires, and so I bought a place there.

Mona:  My nirvana.  Well, besides my family ... I, much like you, see trees, water, and perhaps even some animal life.  But it surrounds a golf course!  Perhaps that beautiful  Sequoyah National Golf Club in Cherokee  that I saw while out visiting you and Leslie.  Now THAT is my idea of heaven here on earth and a wonderful example of where I visit in my mind on those challenging days ...

Roger, when I lived in Miami the beaches in Hollywood and Dania were my favorite, combining beach and woods. Lovely.

Valerie, indeed I did.

Than, I love the beach too.

Belinda, I read about your trip to California...sort of expected beaches would rank high for you.

Sheila, life is even better if your dream place is where you live.

Gene, sounds like a great vision to me.
