I had my second visit to the top of Mcafee Knob this past weekend and we found a letter guarded by tiny rocks, keeping it in place against the wind and the rain and everything bad in the world. (Given the location of the letter and the precipice there, my first thoughts were…well less enthusiastic…but still). So here goes…
Once every so often life provides you with a moment, a moment of clarity. It’s in this moment that you need to be absolutely present and let the calm of just being roll over you. This is what it feels like to watch a sunrise, an unexpected sunrise, take over the horizon, from a vantage point that very few people will ever experience. So when these moments of clarity and calm come, be ready and willing to be present.
