Growing Up In The Woods

When I was a little girl I grew up in a house in the middle of the woods on Long Island, New York. I had a mom and dad in a bad marriage and a much older sister. I was almost always alone out side in the woods. It kept me to have a strong relationship with nature and with my inner child. I consider my self lucky to be able to have that experience. I got the chance to teach my self things that I came to notice no one else understood. To this day I am still very much a lone wolf. It is happy memory’s and I’m lucky to still be a little girl in some ways and I’m glad I get the chance to teach this to my children

I love being in nature too. Trees have a special dominance and grounding for me. Your children are lucky to have you teaching this to them.
Too many people wont let their kids out these days. thank you so much for sharing.x

My parents were busy. So I got to explore, mostly alone. As then, I am still absorbed and fascinated by the wilds and wildlife. Fields, copses, streams, woodlands and orchards were all an oassis of peace. I still feel that peace today, and it is another world. Butterflies, moths, birds, foxes, badgers, rabbits and deer surrounded me. When out there I did not need to be with someone, and I still enjoy it all alone. It remains a sanctuary...
