“Some of us are drawn to mountains the way the moon draws the tide. Both the great forests and the mountains live in my bones. They have taught me, humbled me, purified me and changed me.”
― Joan Halifax
I find that when the soul needs healing, the mountains and forests are there to embrace me.
“Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.” — Robert H. Schuller
In October, I took a rowing class. It was harder than I thought it would be, but also quite fun and a great way to get exercise while being out side in nature. I am looking forward to getting back out on the water in the spring, and will continue with some indoor rowing this winter. Here is a short clip of one of those rare moments when we were all able to be somewhat in synch with each other.
