Out in the woods yesterday,
I was reminded, once again,
about how nature remedies the ills
of what it means to be human.
It holds us in its breath,
its stillness, its offering of life,
its ability to let go.
Submerged amid rock formations, waters,
sage fields, trees, and sky,
I knew, without a sliver of doubt,
that the beauty of this world, our land and our people,
far outweighs what needs fixing.
