The world is coming alive right before my eyes. The beauty of the land in colorado has many depths to it, and my senses are bubbling with both excitement and tranquility. The sounds, the smells and the sights are amazing. I own the sunrise this morning.
The boulder I am standing on is slippery with fresh morning dew. There is not one person in sight. I see a small stream trickling down the hillside as if it were for the first time. Orange silk blankets the sky; the sun is rising! I can see creatures appearing from their slumber.

I begin down the narrow and winding path that will take me home. I step over tree roots and deteriorated trees that have fallen. The tapping of a small woodpecker flows through my ears. A swift hummingbird whizzes by my face. I continue on my way back. I am getting close to home. I can smell a home cooked meal in the works. The aroma of the food cooking reminds me that this is not my Eden. This happens everyday. All these animals are lucky to be living in such wondrous nature. I wonder if they know how lucky they are.
Our creator must have spent months painiting this beautiful landscape I see before me today. With all this beauty, you can never learn the secrets of this of this earth unless you stop and look.
