I’m taking the pass prompt today for the @whatsyourgrief photo challenge. Between the cold, the snow, and the wind, I don’t spend as much time outside as I’d like to, and I’m itching to get back up the Big Thompson (this picture is not from the Big Thompson...). My husband took this picture a few weeks ago—it was the only fish of the day, and I cannot explain how grateful I was to get to hold it in my hands, and to share this one moment with this fish. To be a part of its world.
It’s so easy to take it all for granted. To get sucked in to life and get wrapped up with things that keep us out of touch with our true selves and allow us to continue on mindlessly.
The #gratitude I have for public water and the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than this life, to be a part of the river, the life of this fish, a fixture in the canyon, a presence in the delicate, interconnected web of all beings that led to this moment is one of the most beautiful things in the world.
