thinking of home

"The mountains...are a passive mystery, the oldest of all. Theirs is the one simple mystery of creation from nothing, of matter itself, anything at all, the given. Mountains are giant, restful, absorbent. You can heave your spirit into a mountain and the mountain will keep it, folded, and not throw it back as some creeks will. The creeks are the world with all its stimulus and beauty; I live there. But the mountains are home."(p5)
and excerpt from Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, by Annie Dillard

Soon enough you shall be there, at least for a little while...and Utah will be much more like home than Gurnee is!
