On a cold, blustery day we trek up a mountain. We are crazy because
it is 20 degrees, and the wind is blowing fiercely.
Have you ever just wanted to escape so bad into the world that
no matter what the circumstances, you must be away from the
everyday pace? Renew your thoughts and breathe in calm?
We passed no one on the trail this day. We were loners moving
along and feeling the sunshine thru the wind and cold. It was
enough just to be in the world and feel awakened. The trail crunched
under our feet from the ice. The wind whipped around us so strong
our cheeks felt frozen. The sun shined on us, so bright and clear and we
saw the colors of a winter mountain before us. We stood there remembering
how many times we had visited this place for the last 20 years. It has brought
us a peace of mind many times over, a getaway from the regular, the routine.
We wanted to have a wild little adventure.
Wild, and cold, and bright, and clear.
We looked up into the trees, where the blue peeked thru.
We looked down at the rock and the ice with it's patterns
that made pictures we could see.
We looked out across the mountain as far as you can see.
(We stood in the sun.)
Happy Wednesday my friends. Be wild this day.
