Fool's Journey

Sometimes Life requires you take a nice long walk.  Here Jon, Sophia and I take a hike/walk/Fool's Journey on my parent's property.  This space seemed so magical to me when I was a kid.  It also played a huge role in my sobriety, for it is where I learned to connect with the deepest part of myself.  It is the back... back yard of what I call home.  It is a place where the world doesn't seem quite as threatening, where birth, life and death cycle over and over again without apology or fear.  It is a sacred space, and sometimes I need to go there to reconnect and refuel.  I may run into thorns, step in some occasional cow shit, or have to scale some electric fences, but I always leave this space feeling more graceful than when I arrived.
