Finding inner peace in nature. A thankful note.
I love the forest and nature in general.
It's probably not the mythological bond between man and its surroundings that has been described in media⁰,¹ and literature³. It's rather that beeing in a forest can give me inner peace. The sea affects me in the same way. Just sitting or walking by the shore is very soothing. Hearing the sounds of nature, especially birds' cries can be very touching.
Sometimes it's enough for me to look out of a window onto the nearby forest and watch fog rise from the trees or the sun marking spots. Although it seems that we've lost our connection to nature through our modern world, technology and other distractions, it's still there.
And maybe, some of the myths are true after all.
