Sometimes you cannot see the trees for the wood, so go lose yourself inside, lose yourself in the little details. The tiny cities of lichen that make a map of a weather-beaten hunk of rock. The sticky slow bleed of glistening sap oozing from a tree trunk.  Old rusted railings casting striped shadows on a slab of quarry stone. The delicate skeletal fronds of a desiccated fern. 

I know what you're thinking. How romantic. 

Seriously. Find your piece of nature, even be it just a scrap, and dig deep. Crawl through the silent undergrowth. Get your knees muddy, your shins barked and your back bent.  Go deep into the overgrown. Explore...

This is Wales. Parts of it have a dark sort of beauty, if you stray from the path.
