Back to Nature: Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia

This is one of my favorite works by Vicki. Firstly, because of the location. The town of Inverness located on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia resonates with me in major way, as I view it as my second home, where I spent summers since the age of 5 and where we have a vacation house. Secondly because of my new found love for meditation and returning to untouched nature every time I visit Inverness.

'Lose your mind' and 'Come back' refer to the process in meditation when you are sitting still, breathing, and trying to focus your mind on just your breath. When your mind starts to wander and you notice it wandering, you slowly bring it back. In addition to this, these two phrases also refer back to this specific location, 'Lose your mind' is written at the beach near the entrance of the path through the woods. 'Come back' brings you back up through the ever changing woods and to the house.
