The great outdoors take on different meanings to different people. For those who are timid, it is the greatest challenge they will ever face. To the courageous, it is ironically home. To me, it is the dissipating of thoughts and conversations. The sounds of the day crashing into the path of the winds. People becoming nothing but passing shadows. It is coming close to things not of human nature. Things that have been here from even before I was born; from the creation of time, things from of old. The age of the trees, the susurration of the leaves against the wind, the ethereal peace that brings a smile to my lips - everything that was orchestrated for a moment where I could be alone yet not wanting.
