In Every Atom

We love the mountaintop journey, because up there we breathe a boundless clarity, a radiant blue, which hints of something we secretly long to find inside us...
The great adventure is coming back down, to experience here in the valley that all-pervading sky at the heart of every muddy atom, and in each cell of our terrestrial flesh: a sparkling emptiness for which the mountain sky was mere metaphor.
