Ever since I was a child I have had a fascination with the woods, not in a fairy tale kind of way, I feel instantly connected with nature, way more than I do with humans.

Humans assume too much, they go against the grain, they require too much energy to deal with. Nature is the opposite, it is restorative, it offers no opinions or criticism, it just lets you be.

I like being in the woods, I like the solitude, I like the peace it gives you.

Psithurism is the sound of leaves rustling as the wind blows through the trees, it is the one of the most comforting of sounds to me.

Sunlight glimmering through the leaves, the Japanese have a word for that – Komorebi.

In German the word for the feeling of being alone in the woods and connected to nature is Waldeinsamkeit
