It is such a humbling experience to walk in an untouched snow covered and still environment. It is so cold that the only sound you can hear is the powerful cracking and creaking of nature buckling under the deep dark freeze. Like primal forces waging an ancient and invisible war with each other.
The world feels at peace and somehow makes more sense but not in a normal way, both sane and insane.
The cold slowing down the usual senses, allowing for others to take over and nourish the mind with a new focused perspective. All the while a comfort of being trapped in your own thoughts and many layers of clothes. Makes one feel safe and powerful, fighting natures rules and boundaries. Boosting ones self-confidence. “I can make it in life no matter what the future holds” .
And this is the perfect description of a truly beautiful freedom within confines.
