Views from the Avenue of Trees

Walking through pristine countryside, transforming heart and mind; attracting and absorbing Mother Nature’s testimony of life itself.

A blessing to those with open hearts, subliminally welcoming; in tune with another dimension. Another level of life’s perception; surreal surroundings, combining unlimited heights to infinite views across an awesome landscape.

The reality of a country walk on Sunday and now a mission to‎ lift hearts and minds, releasing and projecting scenes stimulating ultimate fantasy.

Let the mind, heart, and imagination wander freely. Join me in a virtual stroll across a long grassy ridge; manicured pathways of grass leading to vistas both projecting excitement and serenity. And as views are projected, absorb Nature’s wonder.

Walking through a gateway, leaving behind wide views and hillsides, a pathway surround by bushes forms a lovers’ lane; modest trees joined in harmony; a tunnel leading to an ultimate gift of existence.

Passing a wide field on the right, an expanse of grassland from feet to horizon; distant scenery in preparation for a more intimate experience. And then, the view of the field is diverted to another level of serenity and pure wonder.

Greeted by an avenue of giant trees; each with its own character; personality. Some looking up at the heavens, others bowing slightly in polite courtesy. Seemingly endless perspective in the distance. Tree trunks; each unique. Arms of branches guiding; leading imagination to heights of expectation and joy.

Then as if being welcomed and introduced to a most dramatic of vistas, imagination opens eyes further to a scene on the left, forming a picture frame leading to views and colors so awesome, with scenery ‎heart inspiring. ‎A doorway to fantasy. A doorway to reality.

A picture frame; a painting as if a door were opened onto a parallel Universe stimulating the heart in such a way that a desire to float through the frame becomes a desire in itself.

Blessing the soul; a new dimension. Such beauty stimulates imagination and fantasy. Can this be true? Imagination and fantasy. Is it real; tangible?

Walking a little further another ‘doorway’ reveals a truly spectacular vista. Myriad colors and views so distant; far away but a feeling of closeness; intimacy with Nature. A feeling of belonging. At one with the Universe. Ultimately good vibes.

There is something about rolling hills. When viewed from a distance, they tempt the onlooker to absorb their majesty. Imagine standing on a distant hill, seeing the avenue of trees, where you are simultaneously viewing the distant hill. Convert imagination and dreams to reality let the heart fly free of confinement.

Tree branches reach to the heavens, tempting those privileged to witness such beauty and divine mission. A feeling an onlooker would be elevated to greater heights of imagination and dreams by Nature’s Angel.

Spread arms wide. Dream the dreams of fantasy converted to reality; that there is an entity looking down, looking up, looking into our eyes, opening them to celebrate the enormity and grandeur of Nature.
