Life and nature

It has been a week since my last visit to the longue behind Rhoads South. A week has been such a long period for me who in 7 days has been through a lot of different feelings. I learnt from school and work, I experienced happiness and disappointment, I made new friends and missed my old friends… But when I came back to the site, I did not recognize any significant change or difference. The grass lawn, the trees and the pond were standing still as if had been waiting for me to continue the meeting last week. At that very moment I realized peace in the green shade that covers the area. It dawned on me that all the ups and downs are just momentary. I heard the trees telling me that everything is going to be fine. And I believed in them.
