We can never have enough of nature. We must be refreshed by the sight of inexhaustible vigor, vast and titanic features, the sea-coast with its wrecks, the wilderness with its living and its decaying trees, the thunder-cloud, and the rain. ~Henry David Thoreau
|The Challenge : Santa Barbara Landscape|
You'd think I spent all my free time walking this, breathing this, loving this UP, but alas there's always something else that calls this chronic Pisces pixie away from the waves. Don't pity me for taking it for granted, though. Whenever I find myself facing the big pond, without fail, my knees give out and my breath catches.
It's humbling, frightening and peaceful all at once...Kind of like popping that big ole zit you didn't know you were rockin' all day.
