If you follow and read my posts here and on instagram you probably know what I am most grateful for - Nature.

I love to be able to walk and hike in Nature. Just this weekend, although very cold I got my self together, bundled up and headed out, I was so pleased I did as I got to see this beautiful bird sitting by the creek I walk along to get into Valley Forge National Park.

Blue HeronThere is something special about walking in nature, among the trees, across open fields, along side a babbling brook. To enjoy the animals, deer, foxes, chipmunks, squirrels; the birds, too many to name, but when I catch site of a blue heron I always stop and admire them, they can stand so still, patiently watching for fish, posied to deliver a deadly strike and provide for themselves and possibly their family as they are pretty independent birds. Seeing them fly between the trees is wonderful, and thought provoking how they avoid the branches and trees. To see the trees and how the light changes from one walk to another, from one season to another, how the colors change with the seasons, all this is something that refreshes my spirit and soul.

To have a resource like this outside my front door and a meer ten minute walk to be deep in and among nature is something I cherish and am truly grateful for every day.

You can be feeling sad about something, but when you step into the woods, that sadness lifts off your shoulders, you breathe the air among the trees, smelling the freshness, the coldness, the way the leaves are breaking down, or the grass has just been cut. I can go on and on. 

Sometimes as I walk I stop and touch the trees, allowing the strength within them to feed my spirit. Or I might find a rock or a fallen tree to sit and just enjoy the moment, listening to the rustle of leaves, or the call of one bird to another or even just the wind whispering among the leaves or branches above me.

When I come back into the world, I feel lighter, happier, more relaxed and for that I am grateful every day.

Your love and appreciation of nature is something to be treasured as you obviously do. I fully understand your comment,

but when you step into the woods, that sadness lifts off your shoulders, you breathe the air among the trees, smelling the freshness, the coldness, the way the leaves are breaking down, or the grass has just been cut.

Hi Nick... I've always been in awe of people who love nature the way you do. I can appreciate it, but having been raised in a concrete jungle and loving that life style, I also know about myself that I can live without a lot of nature around me.

Lottie Kendall that was exactly how it was on Saturday when I walked. The light between the trees, the fresh smell of the air among the trees all just lifted the heaviness off my shoulders I had been feeling.

Nina Hollander I have always walked, and when I was old enough to drive used to throw our dogs in the car and go for a walk with them. In England all the public rights of way make it easy to walk in wonderful surroundings.

Michael Jacobs I agree, nature is something that allows me to breathe deeper and connect with my spirit and soul.

James Dray it is good to know what makesyou tick and how to revive your spirits.

Brian England that is a wonderful idea and enough to make me think next year that might be a good trip to make.
