We enter the natural world not for what is there—mountains, forests, streams, animals and all the rest—but for what isn’t there. Thinking. We can enter the natural world from here. Now.
My plan is to stay in the present moment as much as possible.
We are where we’re supposed to be. Right here. Right now. No exceptions.
It hides in plain sight, the pellucid divinity of things as they are.
Sometimes it feels like I’ve travelled a long way. But I haven’t gone anywhere. I am where I’ve always been, getting to know this overlooked place, admonished by its beauty.
