|Echo Lake - Franconia, New Hampshire|
Thursday, April 12, 2012
I have been obsessed with the politics and bad news of the day to the point where I get depressed, sick, dispirited. It's not the way to live a life. I have to get outside into the natural world. Beauty. Mountains topped with snow. Cold, clear lakes. Blue, blue skies. The crisp definition of trees just before they leaf out.
This early April morning is testament enough -- birds returning to nest, buds about to burst, life bravely embracing the next step in its cycle and me, alive again and grateful to be connected to the terrifying beauty and mystery around me.
It's a comfort in a strange way.
