Is There Anybody Out There?

“Nature is not mute; it is man who is deaf.”
―Terence Mckenna

Think about it-When was the last time you were hiking and actually listened to what the woods were saying to you? If you pay careful enough attention, you will be able to hear the many conversations that are occurring right where you stand.

The myriad of animals, both large and small, speaking to each other, warning one another of any dangers lurking as you make your way down the trail.

The trees, moving as the wind blows through them, each season telling a different story.

It really is that simple. Don’t rush through your hike. Take the time to just sit and listen. You will be absolutely amazed at what you hear.

Happy Hiking!!!

Looking out the window in front of me,

What is it now that I know I see?

Brilliant sunshine, wisps of white, naked trees and river white.

The limbs reach up ever towards the blue, 

Waiting for the sunset to start anew.
