There's an old American Indian saying,
"Certain things may catch your eye,
but pursue only those that capture your heart."
In the woods there were swings and swing did I.
Quite a serene and surreal feeling,
out there, alone.
My heart was light
and the trees called to me.
For a moment I could soar
if I tried hard enough.
Utah was on fire, it probably still is. There's something about the West that makes life interesting. It's a place of vast and expansive Nature, on display for everyone. In four hours there were deserts, grasslands, and mountains. A simple slice of a simple American life that we city folk forget so quickly, lost in the spaces of our cell phones, computers, and more.
