The woods around the corner can take you really far away. In your mind even further.
Not wilderness big, but huge enough to get lost if you are unaccustomed. I used to trail run a lot in these woods. Both along small paths and completely off road, without maps or gears. I know almost every corner within miles (almost). And I dare to say, I can’t get lost here.
Nowadays I don’t run that much, not at all actually. I ran out of motivational gas. But I do like to take a walk here.
Strange that I don’t do that either very often any longer.
Today I surprised myself walking in opposite direction of what I thought I would do when I went out for a simple spontaneous photo walk.
Something in my head apparently wanted me to go to the woods. And I appreciated that unexpected move. This little 4km walk around reminded me of how simply awesome this place actually is.
I must be stupid not taking advantage of this privilege of having such a nice place around the corner.
There’s no place like nature, simple just as it is when you want to unplug, slow down and rebalance your mind. You need no more than just being there – totally free, makes freedom.
I know that I have written a lot lately about; strange that I don’t do it more often, about things I love to do. Well, that’s actually not strange at all – to much love. You can’t just do everything you love all the time.
