As of late, I have become reflective regarding my place on this planet. I suppose each of us in our own way, has moments to ponder such matters. I am not in a mid-life crisis, but I do feel as if each day of just being lazy is a day wasted. Not sure what I am seeking, but I know that I like, no I really like, challenges. The scene in this photograph I have just posted, best demonstrates my strong connection with nature. A person could not script a more beautiful place than the Sol Duc Valley in the Olympics. This creek, gives me hope that my future journey's will be filled with a sense of splendor and awe. I am mindful that I am merely a visitor in places such as this, but my reverence is sincere. This feels like a place that I belong in. It feels welcoming. All of us need places like this in our busy lives. I am grateful for my time and solitude in the forest. It is a part of me.
