Thoughts - December 18, 2016

“Raindrops blossom brilliantly in the rainbow, and change to flowers in the sod, but snow comes in full flower direct from the dark, frozen sky.”
― John Muir.
What a beautiful sentence. I was contemplating 'wildness' and 'wilderness' this morning and who better to aid in those thoughts than John Muir. I choose to live where wilderness is but a walk away from my door. I have seen a coyote and bears and baby foxes - and heard the songs of birds and bubbling streams. The forest sends messages about life and living a full existence. I look forward to walking those paths with the flowers of snow lightly showering down from the heavens. In the wilderness one reaches a certain freedom to simply be. Scary or exhilarating? It depends upon the wanderer. - Beth Almond Ford
