But different this time! I may be developing a thing for moss.
Cloud walker. One who lives in the cloud of their own imagination or dreams, or one who does not abide by the precepts of society, literature, or art. Nefelibata is derived from the Portuguese words “nephele” (cloud) and batha (a place where you can walk).
My spirit is uplifted when spending time in nature – a great way to start the day. Something I need, and I need to do more of. When I don’t commune with nature, I start forgetting that I need it. It’s not just me. Time spent in nature – even our own backyards – benefits our health, physically, spiritually, and psychologically.
“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he[she] seeks.” ― John Muir
I have visited this spot several times since starting this project on December 1 and today was the first time Mount Hood was fully visible. This view is a few minutes’ drive and about a 30-minute walk (uphill, and longer if you stop to take pictures of all the glorious nature) from my home. The mountain isn’t in view until you are practically facing it, so it can be fun to take people up here and surprise them.
