Take long walks in stormy weather or through deep snows in the fields and woods, if you would keep your spirits up. Deal with brute nature. Be cold and hungry and weary.
Henry David Thoreau (via fickleintentions)
my favorite moments are in thunderstorms, caught outside in the rain, or trudging through the snow in a blizzard, any time the danger is slightly higher and I can go home and sit by the fire with coffee and feel just a little more alive for having been through an ordeal.
