whenever I need to hear something, this song.

I'll be honest and tell you I am not religious. I do not know what I believe. karma is probably the closest thing to explain my spiritual logic. but to sum it up, my father's quote: "I feel closest to God when I'm hiking."

alone in the forest, he says. when the trees are covering the sky and you feel so small.

or in my case, sprinting through the woods, down the forest hills, feeling excited and nervous as I gain momentum and my feet could slip at any moment and there's fresh air engulfing me and --

that is my spirit.

and when I think about my spirit, I pause, and I think about the world around me.

so, this song, this song.


  1. You write so beautifully! I'd consider myself a very religious person, but I feel the exact same way. I feel closest to God when I'm out in the woods on my own. There's something so powerful about spending time in nature where my spirit can run wild and roam free.

    Beautiful song. Thanks for sharing!

  2. thank you so much, Julia! there is truly something special about roaming free. adventures, always. have a happy week!
