Enjoying the more...Naturistic side of life

Today i woke up feeling adventurous(also cozy in my new socks i bought X3) and decided to head out to the forest for some quiet and to get away from the hustle and bustle of my ever-changing life.I came to a decision to go as quickly as possible.

Although as reluctant as i was to take off my warm pj's i changed out of them and threw on my green sundress,brushed my hair and teeth,and put on my warm and fuzzy boots.

I slipped on my coat for it was a pretty windy,cold,autumn day threw my purple scarf around my neck,put on my hat,and grabbed my Japanese umbrella in case it rained,and headed out the door to West Forest.

as soon as i got to West forest i sat on a bench and sketched until the last hiker came out from the woods.

i decided to go for a little walk to clear my head into the nearby forest.After a very long time i decided to take a break.I rested myself on a strong oak tree and thought about how hard and complicated and loud my life is.I stopped thinking and listened to the trees leaves rustling,the birds chirping from somewhere afar,and watched as leaves drifted lazily from the tree and onto the soft dirt below.

I suddenly felt so...happy and calm as if i was in a sanctuary of peace and happiness.i spun myself around and laughed to myself and tried to catch the falling leaves as they were blown off the trees.I laid in the grass and blew on dandelions,picked flowers,and tried to climb the highest tree i could find.In the midst of all my happy frolicking a particular cardinal flew up onto a branch above me.I drew my notebook from the many pockets of my brown coat and decided to sketch it.After awhile i noticed that the woods seemed quieter and darker then before.I grew tired and kicked off my shoes and laid my back against a hollow Acorn tree.

I took at short nap about 5 minutes long and woke up realizing i had no idea how to get home!I decided to keep cool and walk one way and if that wasn't right i would turn around and go a different way-making sure i marked each tree as i went.I began to walk.In truth a little scared.5

Everything was silent as i tried to find my way home except for the crunching of decaying leaves that lay below my feet.That was,until i heard faint music a little ahead of me.I stopped to listen to make sure i wasn't imagining what i had heard.As soon as my ears confirmed that it was in fact music i walked quicker then before,anxious to find the source of the alluring melody.Soon enough i found myself in a clearing looking at quite a scene indeed!The trees were parted to make a perfect circle and butterfly's and some sort of beautiful,shining,dust floated about.I couldn't believe what else i saw!Some odd creatures that look human apart from their pointed ears and leaf dresses were playing in the clearing.they were singing and it sounded wonderful!i was about to step into the clearing to join when i noticed that mushrooms were in a perfect circle outlining the clearing.A fairy patch! That meant these magnificent beings were ELVES!I had to step in though i knew that when i do i will never return home for they will take me with them.I danced and sung until sunset.They excepted me like one of there own!then sunset came and they stopped abruptly and stared directly at me with their beautiful,yet dangerous piercing green or brown eyes.I think i was in trouble!

One of the oldest spoke 4 words and suddenly i found myself on the floor of my own house!They returned me home!I breathed in deeply and crawled right into my bed and fell asleep dreaming about mushrooms...
