It sounds so simple.  Breathe.  Just breathe.  Why is so hard to do?  Why is it so possible to forget to do that?  Yesterday, I went up to Bell Springs Road with Alex for the day.  There is something magical about that place - all you want to do is breathe.  Breathe in the expansiveness.  Breathe in the peacefulness, the colors, the feeling of being alive.  The families who live up there have created a warm community that thrives with their hard work and dedication.  It takes some doing to get there - the five miles of dirt road before arriving at the barn can be both beautiful and bothersome. But then you arrive to vistas that beg you to breathe in the silence and the tranquility.  Amen.

  1. Sounds like a magical place. I've only been up there once, around the time your dad died. I'd love to day trip up there with you sometime. I miss Matt too.
