- Stanislaus National Forest: Emigrant Wilderness: Leopold Lake and Granite Lake
I miss being able to talk to my boyfriend or my best friend all week but I know that this is going to be a good experience away from anybody. I have time to think about my future and get my act together.
Wilderness means wild, untamed environment that has a natural beauty. It means calm and peaceful views that are not ruined by human technology.
Quotes to Remember
“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
“Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, doubt, self-distrust, fear and despair – these bow the heart and turn the spirit back to dust. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hopes, as old as your despair.”
“The difference between loneliness and solitude is your perception of who you are alone with and who made the choice.”
“There is no such thing as a weird human being. It’s just that some people require more understanding that others.”
“You are far away. The distance is deeper in my heart than miles can show. With me, I carry your whispered gladness of life, your silver embrace, your light stepped moonlight with cradled emotion. Love is just a word, but you have taken it out of writing. Together. Call me. Take care of me. Hold me when I forget the simple joys of living.”
“Life is either a daring adventure of nothing at all.”
