"Deny yourself the connection to the wild places that your soul craves and the fire inside you will slowly turn to ash."
~ Creek Stewart ~

I love the mountains, and particularly, the mountains in Virginia, where I live. They rise gently curving above the landscape: deep blue, dark blue, green, and grey. Their presence is a constant reminder of spaciousness and light and life beyond the immediate and the mundane.
     At times in my life, I have lived in places without mountains, or with sharply pointed and peaked mountains, and at those times, I've experienced a lost-ness and a missing- for the beautiful rolling skyline of my home state.

I love and am comforted by the natural features of the place I call home.
