The Most Peaceful Place In The Universe
I was out and about walking again just a few days ago when I came across the most peaceful place in the universe! The land I was rambling through is privately owned and there’s a lot of it. About 84 acres. The people who own it allow locals to wander through, keeping to the footpaths and usually on weekdays only.
The wooden building in the photograph is a simple affair. A glorified shed, if you like. About a mile into the walk, you pass through some dense woodland into an opening where the river meanders by. This is where the ‘peace haven‘ is. It’s hard to describe in words, but imagine if you could build a place in paradise, then this would be it.
Inside are just the basic needs for a simple life. A bed, cupboard and stove. No modern technology here. However, the surroundings are so beautiful you would not want for anything. Although the weather was wall to wall sunshine as I strolled by, I am sure the feelings of peace and tranquility would be the same even if it was heavy thunderstorms.
Invigorating To The Soul
The steady sound of the river rolling by, birds singing and the sun overhead dappled by the leaves on the trees swinging in the gentle breeze. The whole ambience is just invigorating to the soul. I think I could live here. Never have I been in a position before of asking myself could I live without all the benefits of modern day living? No TV, no radio, no internet, just the basics for staying alive, but with total peace and surroundings of Paradise.
Getting Back To Nature
If I’m honest with myself, I don’t think I could live like this forever. As a break for a few days to find peace and quiet, then I probably could. I’ve never understood the old saying about getting back to nature, but I think I do now. This walking malarkey has opened my eyes. What we miss when we are so busy to enjoy what is right under our noses! By the time I’d finished I had walked just over 2 miles. Not a marathon, but I enjoyed every single step of the way.
