I just love technology at times .. but , at other times I just want to run over technology with my car!!
( Now is one of those moments !)
The way the Rhododendron grow here in Boone N.C. through the years they have created a tunnel at times one can not see until you are right up on it . They grow in way that twist and turn into each other making a magical place where it seems anything magical could happen . I think back and remember when I was a young girl living in Texas by the lake . I would skip school and go the woods .( I know ... What? skip school I am in my forties now that was a lifetime away and my parents are gone , so I can talk about it now and not get into trouble . )I made a fort out of the openings of the trees there and I would just stay in the trees for days . ( I should've been a monkey .) I hated being at home ..bad things would happen at home . I would just escape to woods every chance I got . The smell of early Autumn in the air with a slight chill under the deep dense canopy of leaves .
( It just makes me happy )
Then through the darkness light begins to shine a bit more and the next thing you know you are standing in the light of the Sun and ahead of you is a small trail about 2 foot wide and all you can see is open space and fields of where orchards once were . Looking off in the distance you can see Grandfather mountain .Well , some can see it . To me it just looks like a mountain top but , from all the brochures you can look at in the visitor station that 's it all right . Do you see it ?
I am truly lucky to be able to go get out into the forests and woods in my local areas . I can only hope that I have a much longer and healthier life to be able to see more of nature's wonders
( Man has really done a number on Nature cutting down trees . Over-population of people , litter everywhere . It just breaks my heart ...)
I enjoy the times when I can get out into nature without others around . How about you ? I know,. I know . People are everywhere I just wish some were a bit more conserving and thoughtful when it come to natural resources .
Then just as swiftly as the canopy and everything opens up it will slowly but surely consume you once again into the coolness of the canopy above . As you begin to walk back into the magical realm of the trees you can once again begin to see the wonders of creation within the cover of the canopy. As you walk you begin to hear water flowing in the far off distance and as you move closer it begins to get a bit louder and yet again even louder until you walk into a stream .
