There is something about waking up in the wilderness that I find extremely satisfying, relaxing and peaceful. I can certainly understand Steve McQueen’s quote because there are times I feel the same way.
In the city I wake up to the sounds of the neighbors barking dog, the rumble of trash trucks, distant sirens and the sounds of cars on asphalt roads.
When I am in the wilderness I wake to coyotes singing, cranes trumpeting and the breeze rustling through the grasses or the trees. I awaken to beautiful skies as dawn slowly creeps over the horizon.
The wilderness wakens more than my body, it awakens my mind, my spirit and my creativity.
Life is good.
