Just a Feeling…

This thought was had at about the half-way point of a 10 mile hike down into the Grand Canyon…


If I could leave my children anything, tangible or not, I would leave them a feeling. The feeling you get when you first begin to hear the waterfall you’ve been hiking so long to see. The feeling you get when you’ve worked so hard for something and it’s finally making its way from fantasy to reality. Where anticipation meets realization. I want them to always have that moment of complete awe. Of earth-shattering amazement. I want them to live life with their jaw dropped at the unending splendor of this world and their place in it.
