Nature’s Majestic Sanctuary

Sun splashing through the tops of the trees

Glistening off of the crystallized white snow

The crow’s beckoning call

Singing “Just for a moment let’s be still”

The words reverberating through my head

And with each step and each word of the song

I let a little more of my fear slip away

Trust your MICROspikes

I tell myself as I venture across the daunting slab of ice

You can do this

And I do

I make it safely across the section and continue on up the trail

As I approach the top I remember why I love this so much

I can see for miles

Pure beauty

And it’s impossible to feel sad

Impossible to feel angry

Impossible to feel anxious

Impossible to feel anything  but peace and love

And

This

Is

True

Happiness.
