I need time in nature as much as I need time to sleep. The moments I feel most whole and at peace with the world are when I'm surrounded by trees, far from the noise of busy streets. Sometimes my head gets so full of worry and fear that I can't pull myself out of my unhappy rut. But after spending just five minutes sitting alone among trees, I'm restored, relaxed, and grounded. I chose a picture of a forest for my avatar because it's my happy place. It's where I think most clearly, and it's where I'm able to be myself to the fullest extent.
