The ipad Forest

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack....................

Been so busy! But let's get right to it. A couple months ago I finally broke down and bought the new iPad. And you say, who cares? I come to this blog to escape the modern world. Or more likely, what are you talking about, I only came here to lift an image and I'm confused by all this. Well bear (pun intended) with me, I will get to the forest part.

Other then driving through Flagstaff a few times in the past year, there have been no forests for me to return home to. I feel like a starving, lost orphan. And it gets even worse. Recently I've accepted a wonderful teaching position somewhere else and I will be moving....but even further away from the trees. I'm moving here....

Fascinating, yes.....but not a single tree can be seen for miles. If I'm really super lucky, there might be one toughing it out in the teacher housing parking lot. So I left an area of few trees-to none. At this rate, my next locale will be on the moon. But you know what, I will be okay with it and here is why. I may have talked in another post about how being in a forest for even a brief amount of time seems to suck the mundane thoughts out of your head and you can eventually enter into a meditative state. In environments like the one above you end up in an esoteric state. This is literally because there is nothing else to visually fixate on: Cashlands, Walmarts, or dollar stores. All there is, is you and the vast landscape. After looking out at this for awhile your throughts natuarally drift into concepts of timelessness, creation theories, and the ancients. You go deep, real this deep:

The other thing that is going to get me through my forestlessness is my iPad. Why am I saying such things? Well for starters, my wallpaper is a deep forest scene with ferns all over it. I have every forest and nature app available. I have forest games, songs-you name it. With the new retina techonology, the visuals are like you could just reach your hand in and pick a wildflower. And my iPad goes with me everywhere! Not intending this to turn into a commercial for Apple, I love my iPad for the places it can virtually take me. At anytime I can touch the Netflix app and watch a documentary about forests or national parks with forests. I can get on a travel sight and book my next vacation to a forest- Sequoia National Forest (or park-whatever) this October via Amtrak- here I come! I can bid on forest books on ebay and Amazon, and I can watch videos about forests on YoutTube. I can pass on the wonder of nature to my friends on facebook with the amazing forest pics I post on there. I can draw nature scenes on drawing apps like ArtRage and post those too. A forest in one hand, in my purse, putting me to sleep at night with my campfire scene alarm clock with cricket sounds.   Seriously, it's like I carry a mini forest around me everywhere, as I'm always in a forest in my mind anyways....      sidenote- I hope I'm still kinda normal.

I guess living treeless, if nothing else, helps you revere all the trees even more. I can also look at it this way, I will totally be free from any danger trees can cause I guess, like these....

Because I've totally tried that make my apartment look like a forest thing. It just didn't cut it no matter how much I tried. In a real forest I wouldn't have to clean up my crap everywhere, or hear my neighbors pound up and down the steps all day. See what I mean below? Not that same nature-y feeling.

Of course people who are rolling in the money do a much better job of it....

They probably even have a buzzing bug sound from the speakers and mushrooms growing out of bear poop somewhere. Anyway, I've moved every year for the past six or seven years so and I'm sick of it so I've only kept what I absolutely need to survive. Actually by the time I move to the next apartment in August, it will decorated like this...

as long as I can get a projector that's hooked up to my forest-laden iPad, I will be okay.
