Note to self:

Wild places are reminders that the world doesn't revolve around us.
 It doesn't care about our little successes or smashing failures.
 The tides ebb and flow and the seasons change
regardless of how we live or die.

That doesn't mean our lives don't matter;
it only asks that we keep things in perspective.
 If you want to be sure
that you are nothing more than small
stand at the edge of the ocean
looking out

In a world of
self absorption,
preoccupation with acquiring material 'things',
a daily dose of nature
might be just the remedy.

For now,
here in the Midwest,
I'll just start small.
