i feel acutely aware of my desire to be in nature when my soul feels parched.
i reached that point this past week.
running on adrenaline, body exhausted, mind scattered, heart uncertain...
it was necessary to be surrounded by a multitude of trees and masses i can only stare at in awe,
a place where words no longer work and efficiency is nil,
where nature makes its power known not by record-sized raging waterfalls,
but by the gentle landing of a million particles of mist over my entirety.
where time seems infinite in past, present, and future.
and i can be in all those spaces at once.
it is a healing place,
& one i'm grateful to share.
