After three very eventful weekends of traveling from west to east Texas then back to central Texas I finally had a weekend all to myself! So, I went camping for the FIRST TIME EVER on Friday the 13th (a lot of the Blair Witch scenes came to mind while I was out there) luckily my friends are pros and have all the unfamiliar camping gear needed, since I was completely unprepared. We headed out to Mckinney Falls State Park a little outside of Austin but not before making a pit stop for s’mores supplies and champagne (of course!).My goal was to avoid all technology, (which meant no photos…sorry!) think, and enjoy the night under the beautiful full moon and the oh so annoying cicada bugs singing, all night!
For the most part my mind never stops and when thoughts of the future lurk it makes me anxious and restless. But to be isolated from “society”, to be close to nature can help you clear your mind and give you new perspectives on your own lifestyle in a different way. To live by your own wishes and not live constrained by society, your job, schedules, bills, expectations is a tough thing to do and I found that being outdoors can help you gain that balance. My thoughts were less scattered, clear and blissful.
And in the spirit of being earthy and free, Sunday I decided to take a walk with that same state of mind and let my thoughts wander within the city limits.
