I go into the woods alone, to sit in silence and listen. I hear birds singing, bugs chirping, and the wind rustling the leaves. I can smell the freshness in the air. The longer I sit the more at peace I feel. I am becoming one with the nature around me. I feel a longing to connect with the animals that hide or scurry about. I close my eyes, and let all the stress leave my body. All feels right with the world. Eventually, I must leave the woods. However, that peace stays with me until I go into the woods again.
