happy earth day! it is refreshing to at least think about the great outdoors while i sit here in my office in front of a computer all day.
i think the scariest thought in the world is the thought of being alone--especially when going through difficult experiences. i don't know about you, but despite my introverted personality, i could never go through life completely alone. the reality is, however, that sometimes i've had to go through things alone, but i have always found comfort in taking a walk outside among the trees, the flowers, the sky, the birds.
the other morning as i walked home from violin lessons i marveled at a conversation i overheard between two birds. one would call, her intonation up; and then he would answer, with intonation down.
pretty sweet little conversation to overhear. just a little "marco polo" to know they weren't alone.
and somehow, as the lucky passerby, i felt part of the conversation. and my heart lifted, and i was grateful.
and so we discover it for ourselves. that we are not alone.
this i believe.
