"I walk down this trail (to the waterfalls), my shoes scritch-scritching on the surface. No one else is here. The only sounds are natural sounds. (...) I can feel myself relaxing. Trees do not care if I am normal or not. Rocks and moss do not care. They cannot tell the difference between one human and another. That is restful. I do not have to think about myself at all. (...) I concentrate on the water, seeing its pattern, the order in chaos and chaos in order."
- from 'The speed of dark', by Elizabeth Moon. (a beautiful but ultimately frustrating book I can't actually recommend)
