Outside Again …

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
Albert Einstein

For me, the most magical and powerful times of day are when the sun is rising and when that same sun is setting …

When the sun is coming up, we are reminded of the spiritual nature of life, the daily cycle of rebirth and renewed possibilities.

When the sun is setting, we remember that all things end and that is not necessarily a bad thing …

The sky is at its most colorful and vibrant … whether with the promise of the day to come or the relaxation of the day as it ends.

The sounds are exquisite … you can hear almost everything more clearly at these changing times of each day.

Forget being a “night owl” or an “early bird” … catch the whole show.

If you want to take full advantage of the spiritual gifts that nature can provide you, I have a suggestion:

Doug Gilmer, the Backcountry Chaplain, takes this all to a whole new level with a series of devotions which  take full advantage of the spiritual side of outdoor life.

If you want to know more, go check out Backcountry Devotions, his new book … which no outdoor traveler should be withoutSmile

Thinking seriously about hitting the Katy Trail at the first possible moment in the Heartland ….
