How I long for the trail! The heart and soul are profoundly effected by the pristine beauty and grandeur of it all. As we hiked along, so many times I lifted my arms up to the sky as if I was spreading my wings to fly. The power and majesty of nature, can bring a tear to the eye as the heart and soul are bathed in the beauty. As I walked along, I kept trying to figure out what exactly in nature affects the soul so deeply? Is there something more to it than mere beauty that touches the human heart so profoundly. Could there be a message in the trees, rivers, mountains, birds, and wind for us if we listened close enough. Is this what a world of kindness and compassion feels like?
