a feeling of trust

Although I'm a big city girl at heart, I need to get out from time to time. These small escapes always work wonders for me. As I walk along the dusty trails of the nearby countryside, I gradually leave behind the hustle and bustle (mainly in my head). No need to do anything. I sit down in the meadow and contemplate my surroundings. High grasses. Bustling bees. Ever-changing, cloud formations. Trees that spread their green, lavish in abundance, and other trees still waiting for warmer days. I like it to just BE. A feeling of trust rises within me. Trust that everything has its own rhythm; Trust that everything is unfolding at the perfect time; and trust that I'll know when it's the right time for action...for inspired action. The wind turns the blades of grass, and from the distance, I hear the sounds of the big city. All is well.

 How about you? Can you trust the process of life? And even more importantly: Can you trust yourself and your capabilities to find the right moment for inspired action?

Hi Claudia,
this sounds very nice, your words made me already calm down and a bit more relaxed.

Lovely post Claudia! I'm a die-hard city girl but this is making me think about getting out of town and enjoying (with my camera of course) the vast expanses of nature.

These both have such beautiful light and color and seem like they go together. And I agree with you about what being out in nature can do for the soul. I grew up in NYC and moved to the country just 10 years ago, and it has been such an interesting experience.

thanks SO MUCH for displaying my shot....!
I certainly find a little sanity when I'm out on the hills..... although I prefer the sound of larks rising when I'm there!
I find the sounds of the big city sound better when I'm standing on a dusty pavement! :)
