Reflections from the Trail

Spring break, Muskrats, and Promising This World Your Love

Something happened as the radius of my life narrowed from thousands of miles to just a few. It was as if the loss of my ability to explore places far and wide allowed me to see, to fully see, my immediate world for the first time. I began to see the trails right at my feet, inviting me into their hushed woods, the maple and elm and oak trees unfurling around me, and great blue herons circling high above.
