a few more words to sleep on…

but not my own. A brief excerpt from long-distance trekker Brandon Wilson’s Over the Top and Back Again:

“The pure joy reflected in his eyes reminded me why I take to the trail. It’s the fresh air, the heart pounding, air-gasping pace; it’s the lure of something new around each bend and the freedom to explore. It’s the sweat and strain to accomplish something measurable each day. It’s the memorable views from a mountaintop. It’s reducing life to its primal essentials and finding satisfaction in the smallest things: a hot shower, a warm meal, a soft pillow, or word of encouragement. It’s the new people you meet every day and experiences shared. It’s the personal peace you find when you reconnect with nature and the Universe. Could life get any better?”

Amen to that. Under starry skies, goodnight.

 

The joy of one foot after another...go forth and experience.
