saturday i took a quick train down to new forest national park.
i needed to clear my head to make room for organizing all of my
thoughts for this final paper...which i turned in this morning! done and done!
the forest was beautiful. i have been dying to see a landscape like this:
filled with blooming heather, roaming horses, and deep magical forests.
i wandered around, always keeping a general sense of which direction town was in.
i ran into an old local couple with their two dogs. they were surprised to see
an american girl tromping through the area alone. they were lovely,
and assured me that my directional instincts were correct.
i walked for hours, and wandered back into town for a late lunch,
hopped back on the train and came back to write my heart out.
love that being outside can put so much into perspective.
