Katherine looking up on the trek down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
A long awaited adventure– it takes your breath away, and leaves you overwhelmed yet empowered…Sheer joy. Few things engineered by men and women can do that-
There was a man who roamed in the 19th century, who understood what I mean:
From this hour, freedom!
From this hour I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines,
Going where I list, my own master, total and absolute,
Listening to others, and considering well what they say,
Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating,
Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me.
I inhale great draughts of space;
The east and the west are mine, and the north and the south are mine.
-Walt Whitman (Song of the open road)
