Yesterday’s hike sure was beautiful. I’m absolutely in love with Colorado.

Today hiking in Denver. I’ve certainly missed mountains far more than I thought since seeing the Appalachian Trail in June. Feels good to be back.

First stop on the road to Colorado this morning.

“So yes, life is a race. But it is your own. The only people you’re competing against are your past selves; the only people you are chasing are the ones you are meant to become.”

Sometimes I just stop what I’m doing and stare at the sky.

“I suppose this is what I mean when I say we cannot possibly know what will manifest in our lives. We live and have experiences and leave people we love and get left by them. People we thought would be with us forever aren’t and people we didn’t know would come into our lives do. Our work here is to keep faith with that, to put it in a box and wait. To trust that someday we will know what it means, so that when the ordinary miraculous is revealed to us we will be there, grateful for the smallest things.”

It always does. Even when you wake up and it downpours all morning and you feel like crap all day, lace up your shoes. It’s always worth it.

“Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”
