Many have that special place where they go to isolate and conceal themselves from the ills of the world. The romantic poets, specifically William Wodsworth, stressed the idea of using a special place in nature as an aid when faced with great endeavors. Much like Wodsworth in "Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey" that special place for me is Euclid Creek Reservation.
Euclid Creek is a beautiful place that shows its timeless majestic beauty. The scenic view of the wooded area places the mind in another state. The peaceful and tranquil state is a perfect complement that relaxes and soothes the mind. With no distractions and a clear mind, focusing on problems, solutions, and pondering about the near future can be released into nature. The problems of a day are of no significance. The rushing stream yet calm, serves as a way to release your problems into and watch them washed away. Nature is also a second mother that I can confide in.
Just as a mother, Euclid Creek serves as a guide, guardian, and nurse to me. "While with an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things" (47-49 476). Just as Wodsworth is calmed calmed by the power of nature, I am also. Euclid Creek serves as a guide by guiding and leading me to right or just conclusions when faced with a problem. Euclid Creek serves a guardian by protecting me from my internal problems which can affect me mentally. And last the reservation serves as a nurse by healing and aiding me with my problems. Just as Wodsworth had the sights and sounds embedded in his mind this is true for me with Euclid Creek.
Just the simple memory of Euclid Creek entrenched in my mind places me in a calm and peaceful mood. The scenic view, the rushing stream, and the healing affects of nature rooted in my mind all clear my mind and place me in Euclid Creek. All should have a place where they can go to get away from busy intersections, crowded streets, and work.
