The Beauty of Family
A Forest Bird Never Wants a Cage. Henrik Ibsen

Whenever I see something like this during my walks in the woods and elsewhere - I am reminded that family is the most important thing of all

Yes it is, taking a nature walk can make you think about life more clearly, I think. You start to appreciate what is around you and what you have.

One of my favorite pastimes of retirement is simply a walk in the woods with my camera - sometimes my wife is with me, but quite often it is just e and Mother Nature.

I have also found that the same path has many different things to share depending on the season and the time of day.

Thanks for the feedback

I live in the woods. A nature walk is taking a piss off my back porch.

How interesting, I myself prefer the decorum and convenience of indoor plumbing and the 5 minutes it takes me to get to the woods

It most certainly is!

I have found that family is not limited to blood kin, but also to those special friends that stand you in good times and bad

Robert, you are so right. I've had blood kin who abandoned me when I was most vulnerable or ill but the love and kindness of friends filled those voids - a phone call, card, or home cooked meal means a lot.
