Finding oneself.

Hiking in a nature reserve. There is something about knowing that there are no people around you…. for miles and miles and miles. Nothing of the so-called civilized world.

What I see around me is nature. Untouched nature. I see the cycle of life. I see seasons ending. I see new beginnings. I see life dying. I see no interference of man-kind. I am thankful for the privilege of these experiences. The ‘civilized’ world is too busy being ‘civilized’ to appreciate – acknowledge – see – respect – admire this beauty that I am surrounded by just now. They are too busy to listen to the silence. There is so much going on in their lives that they can no longer hear the silence. Me? I long for it.

I see no beauty in the city. If civilized means being away from the basic – this rustic and sometimes brutal but always amazing – nature, I do not which to be civilized. I do wish to bring other people to this way of life. If more people see, maybe more people would take care of it? ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ

But autumn is ending, the bright yellows are turning into dull browns and beiges. One more storm and all will be gone.

That can only mean one thing….. Winter is coming!!!
