My happy place and how I get there

I am walking in a forest, on a path that is blanketed by the softest grasses and mosses. I see the varying colors of green, and the varying shapes of the leaves that adorn the trees, flowers and grasses. I can smell the fragrances from the many kinds of flowers. The deeper I get into the forest, the clearer I can hear the sounds of the birds, the chirrups form the squirrels and sounds of other animals that make the forest home.

Soon though, I can hear the babbling of a river, and begin to see the towering canopy of one of the most beautiful trees that exist.

A weeping willow.

As I approach, The sheer magnitude of this tree envelops me, because it seems to grow as I approach, and I begin to feel a sense of peace as I walk closer.
Walking beneath the bower, I can feel the tickles on my face from her many finely detailed leaves and soon I am beneath her branches, set off and secluded from the outside world. All other sounds are muted, except for the clean sound of the water from the river, and the wind through her branches.

Then I see a door open in her trunk, and I approach and enter, and go into the soft cool green of her interior, and sit down on a knot that was fashioned into the form of a crude, but comfortable chair.

I close my eyes, and feel my feet seem to grow into her roots, and I stretch, reaching my arms up whence they also become entangled within her bower, in effect, my arms become her branches.
I feel the patience and joy of just 'being' seep into my every thought, and breath, knowing that I am at peace.

When I am sufficiently 'grounded' I retract my individuality slowly, thank my Tree for helping me, and exit, then open my eyes still feeling her leaves on my face.

Mmmm now that is a wonderful happy place!

I don't have a happy place...

I guess I am just a lost soul

The forest is a big place, Mystic.
Take a walk on the Path, and if you find a tree, it is yours!

Look Mystic theres one over there.Think its got your name on it.

Ive never met an ENT before juju.Pray tell me fair maiden , do you take as long to make up your mind?

When broken is the barren bough, and light and labour past:
I'll look for thee and wait for thee, until we meet again:
Together we will take the road beneath the bitter rain!
Together we will take the road that leads into the West,
And far away will find a land where both our hearts may rest.

I have made it through the night.Time for work.

No, kind sir, I do not take long to make up my mind.

Whence light and love doth heal the bough and life soon quickens the sap,
I turn mine eyes oft to the way down yonder beaten trail
Which leads to a shore with ships of various a differing sail.
To look across the sterling waters to see the distant sand
And see myself walking beside thee, soul to soul; hand in hand.

Now to force some sleep into my sleepless mind. Have a good day, Amber!
