This is not about danger
but about faith, about being wasted
on your name. If love is a room
of broken glass, leave me to dance
until my feet are memory.
If love is a hole wide enough
to be a god’s mouth, let me plunge
into that holy dark & forget
the color of light.
— from “bare,” Danez Smith
Weekend backpacking trip to the Trinity Alps Wilderness in Northern California.
We hiked 8 miles up to Lower Canyon Lake and camped right at the shore for the night, before picking our way back down the canyon the next day. This hike is full of spectacular views and full waterfalls, even this late in the summer.
These are from a wonderful book called The Art Of Comforting. Check it out and learn how to be better at supporting people going through difficult things.
