wcw – rooted yet wandering

“I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do. They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!”

–  John Muir

Sunday Snapshot: the soul, of the soul, of the soul

“Oh soul, you worry too much.  You have seen your own strength.  You have seen your own beauty.  You have seen your golden wings.  Of anything less, why do you worry?  You are in truth the soul, of the soul, of the soul.”

–  Rumi

wcw (belated) – the never-ending voyage

“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quiestest chambers.  The mind can never break off from the journey.”

Sunday Snapshot: the Grand Tetons

“Although I deeply love oceans, deserts and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty.  They keep me continuously wanting to know more, feel more, see more.”
