Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life - Rachel Carson

“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show.”

If I had to rate my weekend it would have been a mixed review article, I spent my weekend with lovely friends on Saturday, however Sunday wasn’t  that wonderful, my mom was very sick and it made me feel out of place, to make things better my cousin came to visit with Amazing  news! We’re talking our annual trip to Oregon!! I  can picture those tall mountains , the trip will take place in November so am sure the white snow will hypnotize me, the cool wind will blow me of my feet, the wonderful animals ill see will be extraordinary (deer mostly)   and the multiple coffee’s and hot chocolate ill have, while enjoying amazing friends will be wonderful. I have camping supply’s but Oregon isn’t tender on your skin nor on your feet during the months of November so I created a "Camping Wish List"  

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;There is a rapture on the lonely shore;There is society, where none intrudes,By the deep sea, and music in its roars:I love not man the less, but Nature more...”  ― George Gordon Byron

“I am pessimistic about the human race because it is too ingenious for its own good. Our approach to nature is to beat it into submission. We would stand a better chance of survival if we accommodated ourselves to this planet and viewed it appreciatively instead of skeptically and dictatorially.”
E.B. White

TheThere is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself.  -Ruth Stout
