You belong somewhere you feel free…

“You belong among the wildflowers. You belong in a boat out at sea.  Sail away, kill off the hours. You belong somewhere you feel free…”

Go listen to this song: Wildflowers by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers 

Are you familiar with this song? I wasn’t until I moved to rural Colorado last summer, and our new landlord Bob put it on one his recordings for us. Since then it has become my mantra for choosing to leave suburbia behind forever and live in nature.

IMGP4000This is the first time in my entire life that I have felt truly free, and why not with a view like this out of my picture window?

IMGP4008It admit, it has taken me longer than I ever expected to adjust to life in and then outside of small town USA, but now I cannot even imagine going back to suburbia with all of that noise, pollution, traffic and high anxiety.

I didn’t even know how unhappy and anxious I was until I left it all behind.

  1. I love this. I just recently got back from my first trip to Colorado. Can’t imagine how wonderful it would be to wake up every morning and see that outside my window.
