Spring has finally sprung. With Spring there comes warmer weather, new birth  within the great outdoors, which has us coming out from the Winter coma we have been in. Time to get out within nature, see all the true beauty that Mother Nature holds deep within her beauty instead of, the fury from the Winter storms and the white winter blanket. Spring brings all the great outdoor activities for us all to enjoy, with each step of our paths, along this journey of life.

Camping within nature may seem too primitive for some, but it is just right for the outdoor enthusiast. Time to breathe in all the clean air of nature, simply stop and listen to the sounds of nature, the leaves swaying in the breeze, the water hitting the shoreline, the sweet music of the birds as they sing you a tune, the crackle of the fire burning within your camp fire and just maybe in the night sky, an Owl lands in the tree close by and chats to you in his language. Once you set camp, now you can throw out the time of Society, as now you are on camp time which means, throw away the watch and simply, enjoy all that is around you.

There is only one kind of true camping and it is done within a tent, that you set up within nature, there is so much equipment out there today, once you set camp, it is really not a camp anymore, but a five star hotel all to yourself. A hotel within nature, surrounded by beautiful greens and a bubbling brook with a soothing sound. Cook right over the open fire, or just fire up the camp stove and grill. You know…….. getting back to the tent for a bit, there are so many different kinds and sizes to choose from, some with LED lighting within the poles on the inside with its own battery pack, plus all the different air mattresses or cots, to lay on for the comforts of home. Camping within nature has come a long way, which has turned it from true primitive camping to the camping or ” Glamping” in luxury, take your pick, but remember………. You still have to hike within the woods, with all the equipment you buy for your camping enjoyment.

Camping has changed so much from an equipment point of view, but the journey within nature is all you need, to simply relax and unwind from the daily grind. Yes you can add to the camping experience with some toys like, a boat, or maybe an atv, but these toys should never take away from the true camping experience within nature.

 

” There are many looks of camping, but the look of nature is all you need to truly relax”

” It is not camping without the camp fire, so don’t forget the firewood, as you venture into the woods for nature’s beauty”

” Spring brings the warmth, the warmth brings camping, the rest is us sitting in front of the campfire and relaxing”

 

 

 

 

 

Winter keeps its hold, as Mother Nature shines…….

winter monadnock               This picture is at the driving range at the Gardner golf course in Gardner Massachusetts. There may be no green but there is a golf course under this white blanket called snow, right now Mother Nature is protecting the greens with her beauty and getting the greens ready for yet another season of golf.

Some may look at this white stuff called snow and be saying, please no more! We are done and want Spring to bring the flowers. Just as the beauty of the flowers brings us Spring and warmer weather, the snow of the winter has its own beauty, just like inside each one of us, there is beauty in everything, you just have to look deeply inside what you are looking at.

Within the background of this picture, you see a mountain, this is Mount Monadnock in Jaffrey, NH. Just a few miles from Gardner and the most hiked mountain in the World. To see this mountain from the driving range of the golf course is a beautiful site, but to see it topped with a white blanket, really brings out the beauty of the mountain. When you hike this mountain no matter what the season, then see it from a far covered with a white blanket of snow, you truly see the beauty of this mountain, you truly have a respect for the mountain and not just seeing it as something to do, or an object in which to get some exercise on.

When you first see this picture, you may not see the beauty of the green grass, the beauty of the trees in full bloom, or even anybody practicing their swings for the golf course across the street, but when you truly look deeply into this picture, you see more beauty than you ever imagined. The true beauty is the work of Mother Nature, what she has done to get the Earth ready, for us to enjoy yet another beautiful Spring season, then yet another Summer season, so we can enjoy ourselves outside while we bask within the sunlit skies.

There is a lot more to life, than just taking a picture for the memories, it is more about enjoying life before it is too late, enjoying everything around you and really looking deeply into what you see. Sometimes things happen to us that robs us from the true beauty, we then see things with our clouded sight and try to move on, without seeing the true beauty of, not only ourselves, but of everything around us.

We all walk our paths along this journey of life, we all have our struggles that sometimes takes us over, but when we stay true to who we are, stay true to our real feelings and emotions, have complete faith in not only ourselves, but complete faith in God, we will always look deeply into what we see, we will see the true beauty in all that is around us and within ourselves as well, we will also see others as a living, breathing person, instead of an object that is in our way. Sometimes we as people need help to look deeply into what we see, but we are so stubborn that we never ask for the help til it is too late, but it is never too late, as we never give ourselves a chance, to truly see the beauty of what we see.

” We may think winter is keeping a hold on us, but it is Mother Nature trying to get us to see its true beauty”

” We as people of this Society only can see what we want to see, but if we look deeply into what we see, we can see a whole lot more and the true beauty of all that is around us”

You can’t fool Mother Nature…………….

Mother Nature is real, no matter what you think and feel, Mother Nature is what gives us our four seasons. Think of it this way, in our government we have the President and he brings in people around him, to handle all the different departments, well God is the President of the planet Earth and Mother Nature is….. lets just say her title would be, the head of all four seasons and weather secretary.

To be able to get to summer we have to endure the winter and spring, then from summer we go through fall back to winter, with each season we have different kinds of weather events to go through and during the winter a snow storm is one of those events we have to endure, there is no way around it and no way for us to control these events, only just ride the ride, endure the storms as the sunny days will come, ” you have to experience the storms, so at the times of sunlight you can enjoy the happiness”.

Within our Society we have the Weatherman who comes to us via the news, with all the changes in technology he/she is able to warn us of up coming weather events, but they can’t truly predict or make these storms go away, we just simply have to learn to adapt and endure, so we can be ready for whatever Mother Nature may bring.

Just as Mother Nature changes from event to event, the Weatherman’s technology will change and also us as Human Beings of this Society. Real change takes time, we are creatures of habit and don’t like change of any kind, most change comes with much pain and when we feel this pain, we will do anything to relieve ourselves from this pain, most of the time we suppress this pain, ignore the change and try to continue our journey of life as easy as we can. Some may think of change as not putting milk in your coffee? Real change is a lot deeper than that, real change is when something bad happens to you, you change your lifestyle, so this never happens again. When you do change your lifestyle it doesn’t happen over night, even though in this Society we are trained that everything needs to happen now? Real change is in most cases three to six years, but depending on the event, it could take considerably longer? When you do accept real change and work very hard to make it work, you will find that you become even more happier, than the sunlight on a warm summer day.

Our comfort zone is another way of saying we are creatures of habit, we get into these comfort zones cause it keeps the pain of our troubles from us, just like Mother Nature brings us the storms and we complain about it, think of it as she is keeping this pain real for us, so we move forward into real change and become better and stronger than we have ever been. Everything happens in our lives for a reason, it is up to us to find that reason, so we can walk our paths along our journey of life, in peace and happiness while we endure any storm that may try to derail us from our paths. Technology may help the Weatherman in forecasting the storms of Mother Nature, but real change is what we all need, in order to find the reason of what happened to us, so our journey through life doesn’t have to be hard, doesn’t have to bring us to the hate and temptation of Satan, but simply bring us to a world of happiness and feel the warmth of God within our hearts and souls.

” Mother Nature may not be real for us, cause we don’t let ourselves accept real change into our lives”

” Real change may hurt some more than others, but through real change we can all be in peace, while we become happier and showing more love of each other”

Early winter has sprung here in New England…….

early winter

Winter officially may not be here for about another three weeks, but Mother Nature has seemed to be preparing us for another run at this white stuff for another winter season, this is fine as you can’t totally predict what Mother will do and you can’t change the seasons, even though some may even try?

Winter is one of the four seasons, in order to get another crack at the summer season, you have to go through the winter season, some may say they don’t like winter and want it to go away, well if you don’t like it that bad, than go to a warmer climate and stop being so bitter of it, true the snow may inconvenience us, but it is only for a short time and if you take it in stride and moderation, than before you know it, summer will be back with us again.

We all walk a path along our journey of life, we all have to accept the bad to get to the good, when we do this it makes us not take for granted the good when it comes to us, the same goes for the seasons of the calendar year, we have to learn to accept the winter so we don’t take for granted the season of summer and we fully enjoy it when it is upon us, instead of feeling down and getting moody when it snows, let the snow get you upbeat while you go out and find ways to enjoy the beauty of the winter, yes I said beauty of winter, all the seasons have their own distinct beauty within them, much like we all as Humans that walk this Earth, after a nice fresh snowfall, it is a good time to go out and take some good pictures as this is when winter is so beautiful, even if your not a photography buff, it is a good hobby to learn for all seasons and especially the winter, as this will help your winter blues and keep you from going into hibernation, while all the rest of us pass you by. winter is like everything else as you have to look past what you don’t like, so you can see the true beauty deep within the core of what you are looking at.

Winter may be cold and have its moments like shoveling out after a storm, true that is a lot of work, but a little work should never stop you from truly enjoying what winter really is, the white snow that covers the ground, is God’s way of putting a blanket on the Earth, so as the season of spring comes to us, we see with our eyes Earth rejuvenating itself and becoming beautiful with new growth, like a new born baby to its new Mom and Dad, the seasons are part of our journey as we walk it, we just have to accept them all, to truly see the true beauty each one holds, like we all as Humans, walking our paths along our journey of life.

” let the seasons change and truly see the beauty each one offers us”

” the snow is a blanket to the Earth, like a new born baby is to the new Mom and Dad”

” Winter may be cold, so let the beauty warm your heart and body as you enjoy for a few months”

From Spring to Summer

  The cold of the winter, is in transition before the heat of summer,

   the plant life showing signs of being reborn,

   then becoming ever so vibrant to us once again,

   as everything around us changes, we to have a change in mood,

   we become more awake from our winter coma without being torn,

   we venture outside without the big jackets which scores a big ten,

    the beauty of the spring makes us more happier then of our food,

    spring means new and reborn which gives us hope without feelings of bummer.
