Primal Wonder

My trail name is 'Seeks It'.  Foremost among those things that I sought to gain from my ten months on the Appalachian Trail was that fundamental sense of awe - that magical feeling of connectedness with and oneness with the universe.  Those moments of perfect fulfillment that you can get from things as tiny as a patch of green moss after a cleansing rain, a spider spinning its web in the morning sun, to gazing at the infinite sky on a clear starry night far from the interference of city lights.

In all my life, I've never been blessed with such an opportunity - to draw, daily and abundantly from this tap of pure ambrosia.

Sacrifice?  Hardly!  Here in the woods I drank with gusto from this infinite primal source.  Every day!  No wealth of kings can compare.  No words can adequately describe ...
