Minnas Ridge

P1030690

As we drove toward Minnas Ridge at 8 this morning, the day was not looking promising – dark grey clouds, a sprinkling of rain. But I decided to hold the faith. The sun is going to come out, I said.

And it did. Oh my, did it ever. A wonderful group of 13 people with 7 excellent dogs did the ridge to the summit cairn.

There really isn’t much to say about a hike like this, except to say that it was perfect. The views were wonderful. I can’t imagine a better way to spend Valentine’s Day – and Paul even brought chocolate hearts!

I cam home and as I was soaking in a wonderful bubble bath, I had this thought: what if we regarded all life on the planet as sacred? What if we held that the life of a poor child in Bangladesh was worth exactly as much as the life of Pope Francis or President Obama?

What if we changed our minds? That’s all it takes. We don’t have to change systems – just hearts and minds. And you know what? It just so happens that it’s the truth – no life is worth more than another. It’s the belief that it is that is a large reason for the world we have today.

Let love rule. Let the beauty of nature sing sacred songs in our hearts.

    hiking seems to solve the problems of the world – it should be mandatory for the human race 🙂 “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” – John Muir
