every summer i venture for several days into the wilderness. one spot in particular the last few years has become very special to me, the summit of nanny goat mountain which is very lonely, very wild, and requires a fair amount of effort to visit.
when i am there i feel very small and insignificant, yet energized and gifted, awed by the vastness of nature and by the subtle yet strong power it exudes. while out there i feel as if i have been transported to a different world, one not often visited by man. when i arrive back in my normal world a large part of my consciousness remains back in the wild.
