Let's nurture the wanderer & explorer in us
& let it lead us to consciousness expanding adventures
because adventures are good for the Soul
A day after the Nashville Half Marathon, I was in Death Valley:
a stranger in a strange land with strangers where
a maze of desert, mountains and sand dunes
had me gasping, gaping, running and jumping
with awe & wonder
one of the hottest, driest and lowest places on earth
the valley is dramatic and intense
with staggering geological features
and mind boggling colors and shapes
this place is a science fiction kind of world.
As a child of the 80's, when I was a kid of eight, I would circle the perimeter of a playground near my home, climbing onto the raised platform and holding onto the peculiar fences, going around in circles, imagining I was traveling around the world.
Now, as a child of the 80’s, no longer a kid of eight, I feel I am simply executing the will and the energy of my eight year old gypsy self.
