Spending Time in the Woods
I enjoy spending time in the woods, away from the barrier of walls and windows. Among the trees, I am close to nature--a part of it, not apart from it. I go to the woods to think, to clear my mind of the burdens of the day, to cultivate the humbleness that comes from standing among century-old trees. I go to the woods to renew my humanity, to contemplate my place among all nature's creatures.
