Contradictory questioning feelings


I want to share this bit of writing from Virginia Woolf that I came across today while reading The Waves. I connect. Books, nature, solitude or fire?

Should I walk under beech trees, or saunter along the river bank, where the trees meet like united lovers in the water? But nature is too vegetable, too vapid. She has only sublimities and vastitudes and water and leaves. I begin to wish for firelight, privacy and the limbs of one person”
