I know it sounds like it, but this is not a post about ‘little people’ – I promise.
Instead, I wanted to share the stark reminder I got last week of how much like tiny dots we are when faced with the majesty of Nature – and the world at large. As countries become more globally interlinked, and we enjoy more freedom of travel and movement, it doesn’t always feel that way.
But last week, when I visited Cloudland Canyon, I felt it.
Of all the trails I’ve hiked, this was the first time I felt like my life was truly in danger, and I enjoyed every moment of it. It reminded me of just how much power Nature wields over our everyday lives, whether we acknowledge it or not.
When I got home, and I got the chance to go over all the amazing pictures I had taken, it further impressed upon me just how much we are like tiny dots trampling through the canyon – juxtaposed against a mighty waterfall, and a roaring river stampeding under the bridge.
I hope you guys all had a Happy New Years’ night. May all your resolutions come true!
