Trail Speak in the Great Smoky Mountains

I recently had the opportunity to get my hikers back on and hit the trails. After several Florida beach trips and an Alaskan cruise, it felt like forever since my feet were swaddled in my hikers. I missed it. A lot.So, I laced up and hit the Smoky Mountain trails. I’ll be honest, though. I […]

The Sounds of Nature

I took up running many years ago. I’m not really sure why, though. Perhaps it was to combat aging and weight gain, or perhaps it was a way to alleviate the stresses of my mind. Either way, it doesn’t matter. I ended up enjoying the activity, and I really enjoyed the opportunity to be outside, […]

Beach or Mountains?

There’s a book, by Mickey Gill, called Coke or Pepsi. On the cover it boasts, “Amazingly awesome questions 2 ask your friends!” Inside, it does ask light, thought-provoking, personality-based questions that simply ask your preference between two things. For instance, “Sunrise or Sunset?” “Sweet or Salty?” “Spender or Saver?” You get the idea. One of […]

Outdoor Education

When I was in college, I took a course called “Outdoor Education.” To be honest, I was just a few credits shy of graduating, and I was, okay, I’ll say it out loud, looking for a blow-off class. How hard could “Outdoor Education” really be, right? Wrong. There really is so much to learn about […]

The Randomness of Strangers

The meeting of strangers. Is it happenstance? Serendipity? Coincidence? Fate? I used to not really think about it, but as I age and reflect more, I think the randomness of strangers isn’t, well, as random as I once thought. There are people I’ve met that for whatever reason remain in my life. There are those […]

(Re)Connecting to Nature

My trip to the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks some eighteen years ago was my first experience with the national parks.  It was, as I have credited it, my “coming home to a place I’d never been before” moment.  It was a trip that I do feel changed me.  I often say I connected with […]

A Lesson in Perspective

Titles.  I never really thought much about them.  The need for a title was never a driving force for me.  But then I sat in a workshop, and I was asked to list all of my titles.  That’s where I went blank, and that’s where things changed for me.I sat in that corporate workshop many […]
