Near Nir­vana

6 February 2016

In my ele­ment.

IS THIS NIR­VANA?

WENT­WORTH FALLS, NSW 2782

We trek along the nar­row path­way towards the sound of rush­ing water. The sun seeps between the leaves and cast gold­en sil­hou­ettes. Vein-like branch­es salute us as we walk past the lean trees, point­ing us fur­ther down the cliff edge. Every now and then I catch a glimpse of the vast moun­tains beyond the woods. Every­thing is peace­ful here. I hear birds, the crunch­ing sound of crisp leaves flat­ten­ing under the soles of my feet, the water­fall, my heart­beat pound­ing in my ears, the pulse of nature, the vibran­cy of the sun. I feel whole with nature. I’m in my ele­ment. This is my nir­vana.
