A Saturday hike

When your soul-sucking day job starts to catch up with you…

 

 

go somewhere quieter, where you can hear the wind move through the trees instead of rattling your old apartment window…

 

 

where you can only see your responsibilities far off in the distance…

where you can be reminded that even the most relentless flames can’t destroy the core of a structure…

and where strange but beautiful things begin to sprout out of what was once destroyed.IMG_2792IMG_2793

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look one direction and the outlook is dark and ominous…

 

 

 

 

 

 

but turn your head just slightly…

 

and be amazed.

 

Go higher…

so you can see further.

 

Take it in.

 

 

 

 

 

But don’t forget who’s next to you the entire time holding your water bottle.
