It never fails to works its magic. I am at my most content in these woods, away from manmade noise and artificial constraints, right in the centre, off the track. It is here I feel most at home.

It doesn’t matter what is going on in the world, what craziness and sadness and busyness there is – a few steps off the track and it’s all good, there is zen-like peace to be found out here. The trees stretch heavenward like columns of mighty cathedrals and everything is mindful, aware.

“Mummy, I LOVE this forest… I feel so calm here”. I know what you mean, little man. I know exactly what you mean.

Sometimes you have to get off the beaten track to find the right path.

  1. We have to go into the woods at least once a week as it really does re-charge you for the rest of the week 🙂 Looking down at the forest floor is as awe-inspiring as looking up into the stars.
