“Human beings, generally, seem to long for a specific place, a certain geography that gives them a sense of well-being” – Barry Lopez
I must admit, I’m a sucker for a mountain vista. Standing at the foot of or on top of a mountain always instills a sense of calm in me. I’m pretty sure this is my place. Though I wander amongst throngs of people and navigate the corridors of our messy little world on a daily basis just like most of you do, if given the chance I always retreat to the mountains. They are my refuge. Even when standing within a crowd of people sometimes I return back here to the Eastern Sierra, look within the mirror of myself and listen to the wind of my thoughts. After spending a few days in the mountains the past week I fully expect to find myself staring off into space at some time during the day when I return to work tomorrow. Sometimes a soul’s gotta roam.
Where does your soul go to when you close your eyes?
