Feb.10, 2012: Fitting the Season

"Another glorious Sierra day in which one seems to be dissolved and absorbed and sent pulsing onward we know not where. Life seems neither long nor short, and we take no more heed to save time or make haste than do the trees and stars. This is true freedom, a good practical sort of of immortality. Yonder rises another white skyland. How sharply the yellow pine spores and palm-like crowns of the sugar pines are outlined on its smooth white domes. And hark! the grand thunder billows booming, rolling from ridge to ridge, followed by the faithful shower." ~John Muir (My First Summer in the Sierra)
