I loved how this piece of grass created this space in the shadows on the pond. It reminded me that I need to grow these spaces in my life and work. If little grasses can do it then so can I. I just have to look at different angles where it’s already there, unnoticed.
Last week, we visited some of the darkest skies in Colorado. I listened as a bull chuffed at me, the coyote yipped and far in the distance the elk bugled into the night. It was a celebration of the sky. It’s those sort of experiences that draw me outside. We forget a lot of the time that we belong out there tracking the day and night, living with the season’s of life, remaining open to opportunity. The sky reminds me why I’m human…so I can actually enjoy it all. It’s a journey. This sky was a highlight.
Got out to take in some very dark skies. There is something so satisfying about sitting under the stars. The world is quiet but not asleep. Coyote and elk make sound their game. The calm seeps in and there is an awareness…a feeling of something bigger. And yet we remain so small. Most folks have never seen the Milky Way, lost in the blue light of their screens. And it’s so much better than TV. Let nature and the sky lure you back outside.
