    The Soul Of A Place

    it's important to me
    to resonate

    with the soul of a place.
    a space. a time. a tone.



    to get to the soul of a place,
    you first have to be in it.


    humbly.



    to Be close with it
    you have to breathe it.







    touch it.
    explore it.




    learn it.
    know it.


    become it. graceful. kind.




    the earth of it.
    the rocks of it.


    the grain of it.


    the blue of it
    the sage


    the gold


    the rust


    and amber of it.


    listen to it speak. and hear what it has to say to you.


    do your best to reflect the light of it,




    inside and out


    and then you can soar within the soul of a place.

    Beautiful post. You have touched on the heart of mountainbiking.

    We are looking for something, we chase it. For an instance we find it and then... it is gone.

    And so again, and yet again we chase after it.

    I think you have to find your way inside of its veins, and allow it to course through yours. And I think you've found that way…

    You're a cool chick. Thank you for posting this.
    I'm not a vegetarian because I love animals, I just hate vegetables.

    Fantastic post and terrific pictures. Thank you. I don't think I stop and appreciate the "place" as much as I should when I'm riding..... although I do taste the dirt of it sometimes.
