I would dearly love a place in the woods to rest my weary bones. One the exudes peace and harmony. Somewhere where I can examine my mind. A bench with a view, maybe of a pond or small stream with the water gently lapping against it's shore. Somewhere where the trees surround and shelter me as the wind softly blows through the leaves. A place where the mind can rest as well as the body. A spot all my own to go when I grow weary of the hustle and bustle of the world that surround me. What would a place such as this look like to you?

I have a place near the lake where I like to rest that looks similar to the place in your photo.

@HazySue I like this area of the lake, the tourists do not know how to get there, it's very quiet.

I have to weigh the pro`s and con`s. The pro -Love the photo and its perfect, The con - but there are mosquitoes that will eat you alive, snakes love this scene too. I have to chose the beach with the roar of the ocean waves tuning out all the noise, a umbrella if I got to hot, cold drinks in the small cooler.

True. I would be eaten alive by mosquitoes and snakes are definitely not friends of mine. Still, a girl can dream can't she?

I would enjoy a place in the woods too. I would need a lake or stream, and lots of trees too. No neighbors close by would be a must.

I would love to be away from other people. Sometimes I think I would make a good hermit.

@HazySue Me too! I like people, but every time I go out front to tend to the far too many gardens here, people are out and about, and I do get frustrated if I have to stop working and have a conversation. I talk cheerfully, but am so glad when I can get back to work. Not the fault of the people, my house is just in the wrong place for me.

@Corbin5 you need a place in a sparsely populated area. I also get frustrated when I am interrupted in the middle of doing what I am doing. I am thinking I might need to live in a cave.

I hadn't though about venting there but you are right. It is a perfect spot to let your feelings flow for sure.

@HazySue also a great spot for mediating there.

I would love the mountains with the all round view. It would be as beautiful spot with a stream near by.

Nothing says "peace of mind" to me better than a joyous day in the forest next to a stream or lake.

I would love it. All I have to do is walk to the creek at the back of our complex and I'm there. I don't go as often as I should but it's quiet and peaceful.

@HazySue There's a trail along the tree lined creek with a few small decks with benches. A perfect place to sit and be peaceful. I have a picture of it on one of my discussions.

@HazySue I agree, Susan. I like the calmness it brings, most especially when you are going thru a rough time. It just feels reassuring.

I do my relaxing on the beach. To me being in the sunshine, reading a book or magazine, and listening to music on my headphones is a bit of heavenly peace. All I have to do is look out at the waves rolling in to have a little nature at my doorstep....

It sounds great. water is also my serene spot. Unfortunately the sun doesn't lie me so I need to be somewhere where I am surrounded by heavier shade.

@HazySue I think that is a great idea. I sit on my porch on Saturday and really do not hear a lot of what is going on inside and if people go away it is nice and quiet here.

I also like to be in a peaceful place where all I can hear is the gushing of the water or the sound of the birds humming. Where there is a cold wind. I can easily fall asleep with that. And this place is perfect.

That is what I would love. Nature surrounding me, water lapping at the shore, and a cool breeze flowing by.

Just as you described Susan so lovely. I was just looking at cemetery plots for sale and thinking how peaceful that would be also lol

There is something inherently peaceful about an old cemetery.

I do live in a place like that, but am too afraid to sit in the woods or close to it due to my fear of snakes and spiders. I have a condo on the water in Florida which is my favorite place to be.

I have heard that if you sprinkle the area with lime it will keep the snakes away. The lime will burn their skin. As for the spiders and mosquitoes I wish I had a way to keep them far, far away.
