Communing in the Half-Light

Half light of Tuolumne Meadows sunset

 

Everyone needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul alike. – John Muir

Today’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Half-Light, asks us to share a photo inspired by a poem, verse, song lyric or story. Nothing speaks to me more than how I feel when I am in the mountains communing with nature.

This quote by fellow Scotsman, John Muir, really says it all to me. Not only does he laud beauty and nature (to him, one in the same), but he also spells out where we find our leisure spaces, as well as a place in which to pray.

I always feel closer to God when I am here in Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park.

If you follow my blog, you know I am a mountain girl with a lot of wind and water thrown in to balance me out. Seeing the sunset captured in this photo from 2011 as my family and I sat on the granite seat of Lembert Dome, still brings the peace of nature’s grandeur.

As this post is published today, on Good Friday 2016, I am traveling to Yosemite now for a long Easter weekend of hiking, cycling, and pure leisure. (Yes, I only live 4 hours away from there).

Everyone needs beauty...and places to play in...

Easter blessings to you from Yosemite!
