I’ve discovered the way to feed my soul right now is going out into nature. Not just for an afternoon. Not just for a hike. Not just for a sip. But what I am needing is a long deep drink. To go out and sleep on the earth. Feel the pulse. Be on the land, physically, psychically, spiritually. So I’ve just returned from my 2nd solo camping trip.
My first camping trip was 2 years ago (see related links below), when I sought refuge from unemployment. Now, I’m mending my deepest sinews with nights under the stars, listening. Dancing, writing, playing dulcimer, visiting the golden fields, wildflowers, streams, canyons. Letting my nerve endings unfray, and my heart muscle find the pulse of the muscular earth. I stopped for the night on my way to see my daughter, Emily, in the San Francisco Bay Area, and witness her progression in the Waldorf Teacher Training program – but that’s another story altogether!
This is the next chapter of a series of posts about my Vision Quest communing with the earth, the soil of being, starting with my overnight at San Luis Reservoir on May 15, 2015. This is a remote camp site at one of the largest reservoirs in the state, complete with herds of elk and lots of owls.
Listen to my wanderings:
Let me know what you think of my meanderings by commenting below. My next post will be on my Sequoia trip, and I’m on my way back out for my third solo to celebrate my birthday, June 11. I want to wake up in the trees.
