Sauntering – “Some, however, would derive the word from sans terre, without land or home, which, therefore, in the good sense, will mean having no particular home, but equally at home everywhere. For this is the secret of successful sauntering.” Thoreau

Less rush . . .more hush.

Quo Vadis (Latin) – “Where are you going?”

Into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul …

To seek a contemplative response to nature.

“Oh, America, how I began to love your country! What miles of silences God has made in you for contemplation! If only people realized what all your mountains and forests are really for!” Thomas Merton

“Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson

“May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.” -Tolkien

Where the human goes out, God comes in.

“Some people, in order to discover God, read books. But there is a great book: the very appearance of created things. Look above you! Look below you! Read it. God, whom you want to discover, never wrote that book with ink. Instead, He set before your eyes the things that He had made. Can you ask for a louder voice than that?” – Augustine of Hippo
