Floating yet being grounded…nature is vital for me…

There are times when I am lifted so high in a reading that staying grounded in this human world of ours is something I am working on.

This city I now live in has evolved since 1967 and the planners have incorporated ancient special sites with great care. I went out for some fresh air this morning and made another discovery just a few blocks away. Howe Park Wood is a designated special site because of the unique flora and fauna. There are ponds, little wooden bridges, bridleways, woodlands, an old farm, the site of a medieval village, a moat and St.Giles Church.

I brought myself back to write this and start work, yet the peaceful feeling from this place stays with me.

    This post is one that influenced me – so I’m just revisiting it. I must say the mix of nature and spiritualism you have is one I found recently visiting a sami settlement in northern Finland.

    Gazing at the fork in the road one could probably go either way and find comfort. I hope your new found place consoles you in the days to come, Jane.
    Blessings – Maxi

    Howe Park Wood and St. Giles Church seem like truly inspirational places to walk, Jane. I am with you in spirit, dear girl!

    That’s one of the great things about nature ~ no matter how much we see, we can’t see it all. And no matter what words we have, they can never quite do it justice. What a beautiful place to find you’re always home, Jane. I love that place. You should carry a blanket along next time….. 🙂 Love you, Bobbie

    It sounds ideal. I am very happy for you, perhaps many more new discoveries too! just like a secret path in the woods….Love Linda

    I envy that lovely feeling of finding areas in your town where you feel everything seems just right. I remember places like that. The need of nature is a noble need. Your blog gives a sense of relaxation, and makes me want to take a walk and discover..
