"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." -St. Agustine
Four days. Four days until i am back in Colorado. Four days until i am back with my best friend. This was such a spontaneous trip. We didn't plan months in advance like usual. I planned this last month.. literally. and i am so thankful that roundtrip flights to Denver are so cheap. i feel like it is becoming my second home. and honestly, i planned this trip just to go swimming in ellie's pool..ha. considering i haven't gone swimming since i was 13. i also planned to be surrounded by mountains, trees, rocks, deer, water, earth. and i will certainly do just that.
I've found that my safe place, my peaceful sanctuary, is right in the middle of all of that. in the middle of what the earth created. not man. but earth. up high in the mountains. deep in the forests. letting the trees and plants and soils scent sink into me. that is where i belong. that is where i always knew i belonged. i do not belong in the city. i do not belong in a city with a population of 336 thousand people. i find peace in solitude.
I just want to get lost in nature.
I need it.
I really really need it.
