Yesterday I walked for miles. I crossed ancient bridges, walked alongside bridle paths and passed by fields and hedgerows still brimming with fruit. A warm, dry, autumnal day with a slight breeze: just perfect conditions for walking about in nature. The highlight of my walk was discovering this woodland glade. A canopy of green leaves above and a mattress of fallen leaves below. There is a magical quality about these woods. You can tell that there are many stories and secrets contained within. The trees appear to be leaning towards each other whispering and entwining branches to be as one.
There is nothing dark and foreboding about these woods. They feel spiritual and protective and the green luminosity that shines through the canopy make one feel that they have witnessed something very special.
