Nature as Balm for the Soul

I took these pictures with my cellphone on a little biking path not far from my house.  (Not bad for a cheapo $30 pay-as-you-go phone.)  One of our local college campuses has this wildlife preserve, just on the other side of a busy main artery street.

Getting a bike last year, and finally having the skill and weather to explore with it this summer, has wonderful healing powers.  I had no idea there were biking trails near my house, and with such beauty.

It’s one of the many perks of living on the edge of town: all the benefits of city life, with essential services in walking distance, but also close to the countryside.  Meaning we occasionally see snowy owls, deer, cranes, and lots of rabbits.
