“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.” – Lord Byron
Hiking … how I love it so. It is indeed a passion … a deep part of who I am. And each day’s hiking while here has offered me time to reflect, create space, and more clearly see the pieces in my life puzzle.
To hike is to discover peace and clarity. To hike is to create a much needed gap between me and the society I swim in each day. It frees … it releases … and I love feeling my feet in contact with the earth … feeling my legs work to sustain my intention to move and experience this day fully in all its moments. Hike … a passion … part of the “me” mix that I seek and truly, truly need. Creating time and space to move along the earth, on legs rich with life, experience, and intention. Hike … it is me.
