when i refelct upon my mundane day-to-day life, i forget the beauty that life has to offer. i find myself being lost in the inhospitable gross heathenism of civilization - the rat race, get a pay check, drive in traffic, and watching my spirit die. many times i feel i am trapped in a rut which leads to getting through the week to land in the weekend, and then only to have it all start over again. the rut is in a road that is in a visocous loop which reaches an eventual end. the reward, a hole in a ground and stone marker that i existed. the beauty of life lis lost.
what then, is wilderness lost?
dr. debasish mridha captured the wilderness lost definition well when he said, "only those who are eager to get lost in the wilderness of life's beauty can find a meanignful lfe." a wilderness is an area which is undisturbed by human activity which is void of the fast-paced conrete and metal jungle. to be lost isto be unable or unwanted to be found or recovered. when you are eager to be lost in the wilderness of nature's beauty, only then will you stop and be able to step out of the rut of the road you have traveled, and deeply inhale what life has to offer.
last weekend, i traveled by back into colorado's lost creek wilderness with my two teenage sons. i captured this panoramic when i decided to do a walk-about alone while my sons rested in camp. the sun was setting and the light was glorious! i decided to take this image into a classic black and white because their were wonderful contrasts. while i was alone, i had a chance to sit on a hillside and inhale life, being thankful for all i have, and meeting all i have known. i was reminded how great life is when i stepped out of my rut, if only for just a moment, and inhaled! . .
