I sat next to the running water watching if flow down and over the rocks. The sound of the rushing water provided a calm and peaceful grounding for my being. When I got up to leave, other hikers were coming to take my place.
Sitting on the boulder, looking around at nature, seeing the trees leaves rustling in the gentle breeze and the tall evergreen trees brought an appreciation for all the beauty nature has to offer.
Passing other hikers on the trail for a brief moment…I saw into their souls. I sensed happiness, joy, pain, love, adventure, determination, exhaustion and peace. What did they see in my soul?
The trail connected us on this day, at this specific time. We were traveling the same path. Did we experience the same feelings? Did we share the same appreciation?
We are all the same, but so very different.
Love and hugs,
