After persevering through a stressful time, sometimes the call for exploration and adventure becomes stronger. The need to be in the presence of something greater than yourself exceeds all else. This picture, taken simply on my Samsung S7, reminds me that even in nature, the process of carving a canyon and sculpting something beautiful takes time and patience. Life will carve a canyon in all of us. But day-to-day optimism will fill the canyon with trees and life, making it a wonder to behold.
