Oddly comforting

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out til sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.

John Muir


Calm nature

There is pleasure in the pathless woods.

There is rapture on the lonely shore.

There is society where none intrues.

By the deep sea and music in its roar.

I love not man the less, but nature more.

Lord Byron
