Life often brings hardship without explanation. Losses that hit like tidal waves, rolling and swelling and unrelenting.
I believe that God provided nature as a balm. To stay inside is to refuse treatment.
Somehow, sitting on a rock watching the sun sink into a lake brings peace.
Climbing upward trails until you're gasping at those few oxygen molecules that live at high elevations clears a foggy mind.
Gazing into an endless expanse of stars bonds the world and all of its hardships together, and lets us know that we are not alone.
Sometimes we need a little outdoor therapy to put life into perspective.
