It seems in our lives that all we do is rush around trying to get everything accomplished in the shortest amount of time and when we think that there might be some time to relax, we get inundated with something else.  Taking a breather seems to be a luxury for some;  the simple pleasures in life, however, should not be ignored.  You have heard the saying "when life throws you a curve ball...." (I like to end this quote with) "take a hike!

There is a lot to be said about a cleansing walk into the woods, whether it is to blow off some steam or simply let your mind wander with every step...meandering in and around the trees.
