Favourite place, part two

Last time I told you about this place I didn’t tell you everything about why I like it so much. But here goes part two.

The photo sort of says it all. It’s a place where two very different forests meet. There’s a clear line between them, and it’s filled with contrast.
One is bright, free and happy while the other is dark, closed and impossible to enter.

It’s almost like good and bad, side by side, so close to each other, but so different that they’ll never unite.
The contrast. Black and white. Good and bad. Bright and dark.

I like seeing it like that. They’re beautiful in each their own way, and together even more maybe. It makes me think, but it also brings me closure in some way. I can’t even explain. Maybe some of you feel the same and can explain it to me?

I don’t need to fully know why I like it so much. I just do. I appreciate it and I never forget it.

Favourite place (One of..)

Don’t think this needs all that much of an explanation.

It’s one of my favourite places.
It’s beautiful.
It’s calm.
It’s peaceful.
It’s special.
It’s free.

My mind can wander when I’m there. Or it can settle down. There’s no judgement – no expectations.

It’s far away. I only go there around once a year, but I love that time. Always in the fall so the leaves are colourful and the sun shines so beautifully.

When I need to calm down

I got a few colouring books for my birthday a week ago, and since then I’ve been putting them to good use. They’re different from my other ones and I really enjoy being able to switch between them. Patterns or motives, depending on what I’m in the mood for.  (more…)
