ESCAPE needed













WHY is it that when DEPRESSION...discouragement...DISAPPOINTMENT hit...my blood sugar goes wacky? I am DRAINED!!


"What is it that awakens in my soul when I walk in the desert, when I catch the scent of rain, when I see the sun and moon rise and set on all the colors of the earth, when I approach the heart of wilderness? What is it that stirs within me when I enter upon sacred grounds? For indeed something does move and enliven me in my spirit, something that defines my very being in the world. I realize my humanity in proportion as I perceive my reflection in the landscape that enfolds me. It has always been so."
Momaday, N. Scott

I am the same, and think the reason is simple. A child of God with a grateful heart will recognize and feel connected to the beauty of the natural world because he knows it is his Father's gift, given to make his heart and spirit glad. He will see in it the love and care of the Father he loves in return, and will marvel not only at its beauty but also its paradoxical complexity and simplicity. "And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good." That includes each of us.

Wow man, I though you wrote that...I only realized it was a quote when I hit the end. But, I wouldn't have been too suprised, you've got an incredible skill in experessing yourself. Have you been doing all those things in those pics? I'm bubbling with jealousy. Thank you for posting the stuff you post, the pics and the diverse topics... Im very glad you're here.

I haven't really gotten out for awhile now. All your pictures made me think, when those feelings hit for whatever reason I need to look back on the good times and it will help... your different pictures remind me of the good things this life has to offer. I guess here's to the good times, past and future! Take it easy and thanks form the memories...

You boys are breaking my heart. I love what you've written and believe there is a day coming when you will get to be fully you and loved and embraced for it. Great writing, great music. Check out Sean Hayes, he's a contemporay of Brett Dennen, I think you'd like him. It looks like you have a great online support network but please feel free to email me any time.

Hi Zinj, I saw your comment at Beetle's blog, but Beetle's had been banned for some time for posting positive comments about same-sex marriage and being gay.

So, well. Beetle's basically a nasty bully: try not to worry about her mean comments.
