Your Friendly Hise Hikers Tuesday Tip: In Nature… Nothing Is Perfect, And Everything Is Perfect.
I’ve often pondered how it is that every trip in nature restores balance, and peace, and brings so much wonder and awe, while simultaneously drawing me to begin planning our adventure before we’re even home from the trip we’re on.
Over the weekend, we took a trek around part of Folsom Lake and I saw this magnificent view of the trees in front of us (this photo)… it was breath-taking… in all of their spaciousness, their airy-ness, their sprawling limbs, and not-giving-a-fu**-ness about what their neighbor tree is doing… these trees are living their best tree life.
This quote right here sums it up:
“In nature, nothing is perfect, and everything is perfect.
Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.” – Alice Walker
And you know what I think the strong draw and correlation for me is? That *I* am like a tree that can be contorted and bent and still be beautiful. And so are *you.*
