Quote on Nature and Being

“The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green earth, dwelling deeply in the present moment and feeling truly alive.”

-Thich Nhat Hanh

The reason I run trails is to be in the moment, to feel thankful, to marvel at the miracle of nature. Without a careful awareness of your surroundings on a Hawaii trail, you are likely to become closely acquainted with gravity and the ground.

Surrounded by life, earth, and air, I imagine it’s like being a star in a galaxy of celestial bodies: timeless, connected, and elemental.
