Pic of the Week #22 My Happy Place-Il Mio Posto Felice

Theme. My Happy Place

My happy place is in the woods. I sit on the cement bench when I need to gather my thoughts and relax. I close my eyes, take a deep breath and listen to the birds chitter-chatter.

The bench faces a pond I built years ago, where toads, frogs, and dragonflies laid their eggs in the spring. It has long been abandoned, and now the wild boars use it for bathing in the mud.

Where’s your happy place?

Il mio posto felice è nel bosco. Mi siedo sulla panca di cemento quando ho bisogno di raccogliere i miei pensieri e rilassarmi. Chiudo gli occhi, faccio un respiro profondo e ascolto il cinguettio degli uccelli.

La panchina si affaccia su uno stagno che ho costruito anni fa, dove in primavera rospi, rane e libellule deponevano le uova. È stato a lungo abbandonato, e ora i cinghiali lo usano per fare il bagno nel fango.

Qual’è il vostro posto felice?

When I was a child, I spent my summer holidays by the swamp catching tadpoles and other creepy critters or running after wild animals. I wanted to become a veterinarian when I grew up. But destiny turned my life around - I moved to Italy where I obtained my BS in Environmental Sciences and Territorial Management. When not working in our family-run business, I write, read, play with clay, doodle, and go on scavenger hunts in the woods followed by my six cats and two dogs.

    1. We went to the beach last Saturday with my grandchild and my DIL. We had a lovely lunch and played in the sand.
