🗺👆🏻Hidden Lake Trail. A very peaceful 🧘♂️and pleasant walk. 🙌🏻Note to the hikers we met on the way with towels and swim trunks 💧- it is not swimmable as the water levels are low at this time of year. 😆

This started as a travel piece and evolved organically into something else entirely. I'm inordinately proud of this one because it was one of those mindful moments where I saw beneath the surface to something real and resonant. Sometimes the simple things really are the most beautiful. If you enjoy this one, check out Eulogies for the Living (link in bio), which is not nearly as depressing as it sounds. .

A small part of me wants to sing "Here come the Men In Black, galaxy defenders!" 🙉
Most of me just wants to go back, though. 😏
Where will this weekend take you?
