Forest Keyhole

“There I feel that nothing can befall me in life, — no disgrace, no calamity (leaving me my eyes), which nature cannot repair. Standing on the bare ground, — my head bathed by the blithe air, and uplifted into infinite space, — all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eye-ball. I am nothing. I see all. The currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or particle of God.” –Nature by Ralph Waldo Emerson 1836.

Wildflower Meadows

Hiking up to the peak, wildflower meadows greeted me. Clustered by a glacial brook, the flowers jetted from the earth, dotting the green hills with pink and blue blossoms. 

This oasis from the rocky hills beyond gave me a moment of solitude and peace. I reflected on my journey thus far.

As always, I was excited to see what lay around the corner.
