On Sunday, I spent my sabbath out in the woods, on and off a nature trail at a local park. I bundled up and headed
out to clear my mind and spirit. Along the trail, I found a set of double daffodils. Just two. Out of nowhere. I pulled out my phone and snapped a photo. As I got down on their level, I noticed 3 small periwinkle flowers nestled in some pine straw behind the yellow
I continued on down the trail, and what was planned to be a quick run turned into an hour and a half of
meandering, photographing, and observing. Could not have been more peaceful. Got me to thinking about the places and spaces in nature that bring me peace: the Blue Ridge Mountains in autumn, a summer beach at sunset, a snowy trail in winter.
So where in nature do you find peace? How often do you go there? When can you go again?
