Finding Your Own Spiritual Place

One of the greatest gifts that we have is traveling in the American Southwest. With just a tank of gas, a few bottles of water and some camping equipment, we are able to explore some of the most beautiful places in the world.

So, as you go along with your travels, enjoy those places, moments, sunsets that move you. Hike, camp, photograph, lay on the cool sand, watch the stars all night.

You might also find a place that will come back to you, as in a dream, when you get home. Visit that place again. Perhaps camp at the same spot, take new and old friends to that place, celebrate the solitude of that place,write poetry about it.

"Grow wild according to thy nature....Let the thunder rumble...take shelter under a cloud...Enjoy the land, but own it not..."

"Adventure is not in the guidebook and beauty is not on the map. Seek and ye shall find."

Jerry and Renny Russell, On the Loose

"...I reckon I got to light out for the territory ahead of the rest, because Aunt Sally she's going to adopt me and sivilize me and I can't stand it. I been there before. " Mark Twain

Write to us about your spiritual places, travels, writings, photographs and thoughts. We will share it with others.

Peace Be with You

"To pray you open your whole self

To sky, to earth, to sun, to moon

To one whole voice that is you.

And know there is more...."
