At the Grand Canyon!
This past weekend, our family trekked to the Grand Canyon for the second time in less than a week. Why? We just needed to bear witness to its greatness again. When we embarked on the initial trip, it was hurried, harried, and over far too soon. Before we knew it, we were on our way home with virtually nothing to show for our efforts.
No, no, that wouldn't do at all. We had to return and give the Canyon the proper reverence.
This time, we stayed in Flagstaff overnight, ensuring a decent night's sleep before continuing our journey the next morning. With stomachs full and souls bursting with anticipation, we lingered at the park for several hours, filling our eyes with vastness, our ears with glorious stillness, and our minds with the humbling knowledge that, despite what our culture would have us believe, we are not the center of the universe. When our appetite for natural, untouched beauty was satiated, we clambered back into the car, ready to tackle the rigors of life back home.
I generally don't love Mondays, but today, I'm on top of the world.
