Took my pups to the park early this morning. Saw some pretty amazing scenery, and it wasn’t too populated. The cooler weather and time of day most likely had a lot to do with that. These two own my heart.
As we walked along I wore a smile that I had no intention of trying to hide. As far as I could tell there was no one to see it anyway. We stopped a few times just to listen for awhile and really take in the view.
The patterns of the rocks in the paths we took were interesting to me. Some were quite large and others just pebbles, yet they were embedded in the hard earth just the same. There was a lot of water flowing, my hope is that it will do more good than harm to the forests this year. Weather modification programs are out of control.
Here’s a short video I took while walking along with these two love bunnies. It’s the simple things …
There has to be the possibility for a radical transformation and change, and if it can happen in an individual, then it can happen in a culture and culture’s connection to nature. We’re in that moment where we’re either going to allow the unraveling things to pull us further into darkness, or we’re going to pick up a thread ourselves. We’re not responsible for the whole thing, we’re just responsible for that thread, and if we pull that thread forward we’re joining the resonance of creation and the reweaving of nature and culture.
It was a long and beautiful hike. I was pretty tired at the end, and no wonder. The 3 hour, 7.1 mile, moderate difficulty hike I thought I was taking turned out to be an 8.3 mile, strenuous difficuly hike.
This was an experience that left me breathless, literally.
The sites were amazing! My muscles worked, my lungs added a ton of air to my body. I visualized them burning the toxins from my form and as I replaced the water my body sweat out, I saw my self purified.
Only when I reached the top and looked out and down did I realize what a climb I had taken! The views were spectacular!
The natural rock steps as I trekked up this trail were incredible! I actually was not quite prepared for this as I wore sandals that were not really snug to the foot and they kept trying to slip off. Next time I hike, I’ll be wearing at least tennis shoes!
After walking the decline for a time I met the rocky slope and it started to incline once more. I thought my legs were going to scream, I know I wanted to verbalize my surprise, however there was no one to tell it to.
I had stopped several times in the past on the Cape Overlook above. I was curious every time what was down here at the bottom, and now I know. It is a unique perspective seeing from above all these years an finally making it to the bottom.
This journey was a challenging one. By the end of this hike my 51 year old self was asking me why I chose to do this, and the answer is simple … I was unprepared, I accepted a challenge without fully investigating it.
Lesson learned. Full research will be made for future hikes, sturdy footwear and an extra bottle of water will be brought also.
Why are governments of this earth intent on creating another MARS??
My husbands family are selling acreage they’ve had for a time. The value has dropped considerably due to the trees being worthless, they are sick, dying and dead.
There are eco-systems across the globe which have been utterly destroyed by spilled oil.
Food caught in the ocean is tidied up, canned, and sold to the purchaser who by now may be so disconnected from the food source, they are oblivious to it’s current state.
The living conditions for the animals who live here are in severe decline. People do not seem to understand the affects of using, and tossing aside, the waste of the products we have been given to choose from.
As the earth disintegrates before our very eyes, we are blinded by our “smart” phones, our electronic gaming, lap tops and many other distractions. It has not been emphasized that we are creating our future, the future for the children we claim to love.
It is sad to see the narrow mind set that must be ours. It is difficult to see the sinister scene behind the manufacture and use of plastics, we have been lulled by ease.
Only we can make a change. This planet and all life upon it is danger. As we move about in a busy distraction of bills to pay, jobs to do, and troubles that mount … along with the dissension between us … life is slowly, yet much quicker of late, being sickened, and killed.
As we fight among ourselves over political agendas, skin color, and who is right to love whom … our world is being destroyed.
Who will save it if we do not? Who will ensure the continuation of life?
Politicians? Scientists? Makers of electronic gizmos? The military? Oil drillers and movers?
We can see, if only we will look. Lift our eyes and see what is being done by those who are supposed to care, who are on the payroll of the people in the free world.
