When I want the Truth, I walk into the woods …

Today, I walk into the forest looking for the Light.

I have been a hunter of light for some time now, and experience has taught me that if you want to see it best, you must look for it in the dark.

So I follow the trail until it’s swallowed in shadow.  I walk, and keep walking, to the heart of the woods, where the leaves are so thick that the wind can barely get through.

I listen to the rain on the canopy and don’t feel a drop — listen for birdsong and hear nothing.

And then, this:

The sun like a fist, cracking the dark wide open.

I stand there shooting until I feel my soul open, too. ❤


  1. Great post! I’ve been realizing how much of my life is spent indoors. Nature provides moments like these that nothing else can!

    1. So true, Charnell… I’m lucky to live in a place where the sidewalk literally ends at the edge of the forest. I go there all the time to feel healed and whole. I don’t know what I’d do without it… Hope you get some outside time this weekend! ❤

    1. Thank you, lady … We all need some outdoor time every once in awhile. Hope you can make some moments out there this week … Hiking, biking or picnicking in the park! In the meantime … Do you have anything green and happy in your cubicle? 🙂 Orchids are my favorite … To me, they always make whatever space they’re in feel lush, tropical and luxurious, no matter how drab and cold the surroundings. 🙂

      1. I’m a diehard gardener so surrounding myself with some green is second nature. Unfortunately, the window in my cubicle faces a brick wall!! Can you believe that!?? Barely any natural light for a plant to flourish. Sigh! As long as the weather is sunny and warm, I make a point of enjoying the outdoors! Thanks for your inspiring post! xoxoxo

        1. You are SO welcome lady … And that stinks about the brick wall! Can’t believe it! If it helps: I’ve had good luck with a snake plant/mother-in-law’s tongue in locations with absolutely no natural light. 🙂

              1. OMG – it was so pretty. It bloomed these strangle looking, tentacle-like delicate flowers that were a very pale, mint green. They were so strongly perfumed – my whole living room smelled divine. They also created a very sticky sap….
