A good long walk…

AS4A3450-1

When we need these healing times, 
there is nothing better than a good long walk.
It is amazing how the rhythmic movements
of the feet and legs 
are so intimately attached to cobweb cleaners
in the brain.

The Forest

“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.”

~Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) Scottish novelist, poet, and writer

Amidst the Simple Beauty

AS4A2553-1

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”

~ Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
