I have always had a serious case of wanderlust, but right now it is at an all time peak. Living in an urban part of Arizona doesn't allow for much nature, nor much diversity, so I am now desperate for a new view. I need pines and mountains and mud on the soles of my shoes. I need a backpack over my shoulders and a canteen strapped to my hip. I need to go fishing in a lake and climb to the top of the mountain and look out over my accomplishment. I need to nap on the cool grass and pick a bouquet of flowers. I need to braid those flowers into my hair and press them into my journal. I need to smell the fresh air and let it fill my lungs and brush my hair. I need to escape from my everyday life and join nature where the only noise at night are the crickets chirping. Join me.
