The Rock


It's the perfect place to be, this rock. Surrounded by the woods, by thickets of rhododendron, all sounds muted by the rush of the waterfall. My husband stretches out on the rock and instantly relaxes—I can see it happening. Everything stressful drains out, and with enough time, you can stand up and somehow find you've gained new perspective and strength. We have other places likes this: a bench in our yard, a log along a trail, a boulder by the river. Where's your spot?

  5. Great photo. I live in Western NC and we have quite a few places like this. I think I need to get out of the house and into the woods soon.

  6. Oh that gave me chills, I used to live in WA and my fave place was the bay. But now in TN I have a bubbling creek down the hill in my yard, and I have been longing for snake and tick season to be over so I can get reacquainted ;)
