Do you ever just stand in the woods/forest and listen? The crackling of the branches, birds chirping or flying overhead and soft winds flowing past your ears. I love these sounds when I am sitting close to a cabin, but once I’m out in the middle of the forest the sounds scare me because I don’t know what nature holds beyond where I can see. I’m scared that a random bear or deer will come out of the woods and try to eat me. It’s an odd fear that I can’t seem to get over, but I’m working on it.
Every time I go up to Ukiah with my boyfriend to visit his dad I fall in love with the sights of the property, but I’m scared to walk though the trails. Now that I started watching “Lost” I feel like a polar bear or mystic black smoke cloud will attack me, maybe ever a wild boar, but I have to remember that I’m not on an island. I’m in the mountains. At the end of the day, I need to get over it.
