I Find Peace in the Woods

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?
