I live in a wilderness that is quietly loud. And while I may not rest here forever, I carry the wild to my every endeavor.
It’s simplicity mixed with what is natural; mixed with extravagant colors and memorable fragrances.
It’s peace, mixed with hope and belief. It’s miles and miles of freedom and openness. It’s honesty, with its pain and beauty.
It’s purpose, mixed with the clean and dirty. It’s loud, mixed with deafening silence.
It’s the hot and the cold and creatures untold. It’s curiosity mixed with discovery; the obvious and the hidden.
This is the world I carry inside.
Elizabeth Brewster was right–“People are made of places.”
And I am made up of here.
