Nature, North Carolina

A dose of nature

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, 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.”
Anne Frank

When the world begins to feel scary (and lately, that seems far too often), I step away from the internet and the constant barrage of sensory overload to go for a walk.  I find peace in communion with nature. The trees are my cathedral, the birds my choir and the sunlight a reminder that there is always another daybreak after even the darkest of nights.

Don’t think you have to live in the country to find a quiet moment with nature.  I live within city limits and the following photos I took whilst on walks within a short distance of home in easily accessible public parks..just in the past week!

Serenity and wonder is all around….if you take time to look for it.  If you enjoy these, try visiting a new site I’m working on, Nature NC and share what you see on your walks.
