Behind the library was a small group of trees and a picnic table. As a young child I would go there when I needed to find peace. Sometimes, I would sit alone quietly and just look at the trees. Other times, I would read a book or just walk around the area.
When I was older, I would ride my bike to Buffalo Park in Mannheim, Germany. It was a large wooded park with nature trails and I would stay out there all day.
Things didn’t change when we moved to Alabama. I went to the woods and played in the creek for hours.
For as long as I can remember, I have always found my peace in the woods. Where do you go to find peace?
