There’s something about the psychological space when you’re sitting in a forest. Being in the city your line of sight is typically limited to something like half a mile, a mile. A few miles if you’re by the river of somewhere taller. But it feels tighter. There’s people nearby, shops, stores, cars, sidewalks, other buildings, signs. In nature, there’s none of it. And even though you might be able to see only a quarter or half-mile because of the trees - you know there’s nothing but more trees beyond that. And it feels safe. Calm. Like my brain has room to sort of open up and explore without risk of getting bombarded with stupid advertising or a loud honk or someone screaming.
