second verse

We mark ourselves here as a tiny part of that something-greater, a piece of the mystery and puzzle and wonder that is life…be it an accident or a gift, we do well to cherish it….

Fall trail in the morning

  8. I see someone above said it was one of their absolute favorites – it is mine, too. I just think this is terrific. And your words – it’s very hard to write that kind of a thought without it being cloying, but you succeed. This is so well done!!!

  10. An image so many of us would not see but it really does have a special quality to it, Scott. That’s a well crafted couple of lines of writing too – conveying simply such a deep concept that gets right to the heart of life. Is that yours or a quote from elsewhere?

    • Part of my joy in being out there are the moments alone when I stand in the trail and just look around….soaking it all in. And yes, those are my words, too. Thank you, Andy….I appreciate your comment.
