I stumbled upon this amazing website called Unsplash in my wanderings about the web. Every 10 days they put up 10 free stock photos that you can do with what you like. This gorgeous forest was put up by Kim Daniel and I instantly fell in love with it. Isn't it lovely? I think I have wanderlust, but it just calls to me.
Anyway I realized that I do so much reading, and so much writing about that reading, that sometimes I forget to just step back and take some time to ramble about other things :). Like the fact that my husband and I took our anniversary photos this weekend, in a beautiful wooded area in our city. It's in the middle of this huge park and, even though our city is really busy, when you're in the nature center you can't hear the cars. You can't hear the city. All you hear is nature, and it's gorgeous.
I know I could never actually move away from Southern California. My grandmother always says that everyone finds their place, and this is mine. Still, it's nice to know that there's a little haven nearby to escape to. Even if it's only a temporary one. Sometimes it's necessary to get away from the bustle and just be with the woods. Perhaps next time I'll take a book with me.
