I recently had the opportunity to meet a couple of friends for a painting trip in the mountains. As I looked out onto the layers of blue upon blue upon blue, I decided that mountains carry a sacred and powerful energy that is all their own. As you look out into the distance, you can't help but feel that all the things that seemed so urgent and important five minutes ago have evaporated just like the mist before you.

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves"...John Muir
