In my session with my counselor on Friday, she asked me if I had a place where I felt peaceful and completely at ease. I admitted that I used to find cemetery’s rather peaceful because there was no one there to bother you or try to chat you up. But the more I thought, there is one place where I like to go walking because it’s a place where I feel free. So she asked me if I would be willing to take her there. I wasn’t sure about that because it’s the place where I feel most as ease mainly because no one else is there when I am there. But I told her I would consider it.
I called her later and told her that I would share it with her but only with the understanding that this is a ONE TIME deal. I’m not willing to give up my peaceful spot! She agreed and Saturday Morning, I met her at her office and we walked to my peaceful place.
I love walking here and thinking. There’s something about being among these trees that have lived through so much and remain so majestic that gives me hope and reminds me that I may be down sometimes but I’m not out! I usually take my daypack with books, notebooks, and, if you’ll pardon the indiscretion, a roll of TP just in case.
