Being completely alone in the woods for the first time is a combination of anxiety, fear, and exhilaration. You feel completely in control, yet totally vulnerable.
Every bending and swaying branch evokes fear of the source. The dancing flames of the fire become your only solace.
Self-preservation motivates a level of alertness unmatched. You feel as though for the first time you are truly surviving.
Moon ablaze, smoke twirling, coyotes howling. Oh the beautiful risk of living.
Alone in the woods. Alone in the woods. Alone in the woods.
