As I view the continental divide I think about the song that I began this blog with, “Roll Me Away”.
“Rolled across the high plains
Deep into the mountains
Felt so good to me
Finally feeling free.”
Stood alone on a mountain top
Staring out at the great divide.
I could go east,I could go west
It was all up to me to decide.
Just then I saw a young hawk flying
And my soul began to rise
And pretty soon my heart was singing,
Roll me away, I’m gonna roll me away tonight.
Gotta keep rolling, gotta keep riding,
Keep searching till I find what’s right.
And as the sunset faded,
I spoke to the faintest first starlight
And I said, next time…
Next time we’ll get it right.”
This day is what I was thinking about when I started this blog. The feelings I feel now are the ones I’ve longed to feel since I started thinking about living this lifestyle, I few years ago.
I play John Denver’s “Rocky Mountain High” and tears flow.
“My sight is turned inside myself as I try and understand
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake.”
Nature is astoundingly, heart-wrenchingly, beautiful!
I drive along, singing, trying to take it all in, and knowing that yes, I can go east or I can go west and it really, truly is all up to me to decide.
I am grateful for this day.
