Theron Humphrey  Finding my way back to the important places

http://www.thiswildidea.com/

Always seeking max comfort & chill

Exactly how I've been feeling this season, a deep peace in being content with where I'm at, with what I've been given 🌾

Hwy 36 is my favorite route across Kansas towards Colorado. It's one of those paths that makes ya remember most of the good stuff is along the way, not just where you're trying to end up. The Interstates don't have the right scale, they are too fast, they feel even less human. Seems like folks hardly ever stop to look when they travel 'em. They just become mind numbing paths. But if you can find yourself with a little spare time these smaller highways give dividends.

This fella right here has a habit of telling me he loves me. Moons ago that would make me anxious, the protector inside me would rear up and I'd shut down emotionally to keep it all at bay. Not sure if that makes any sense to ya but what I've learned this season is that life is sweetest when your true self is driving. Not some notion of your family legacy, or your trauma, or your pain, but when you tell all that stuff to stand behind the line and let your true self drive then it's sweet. So sweet β˜€οΈ.

Hard to think of the times when this dog hasn't made me smile πŸ™ƒ

Don't leave your door open when you're washing sheets and there's a muddy coonhound on the loose πŸ™ˆ

Daily run πŸ™ŒπŸΌ we should prob start trading places tomorrow

Some of the most significant places I've ever walked are open fields, they are my mountain tops, flat summits. Fellas like Wendell Berry or Edward Abbey have written beautifully about the importance of the wilderness and what it means for our souls, they've given words to how I feel about places like this.

But there's another side of it all too. I really just missing riding on my grandaddy's Allis Chalmers D15 tractor, standing on that back blow, helping him dig deeper into Carolina soil.

I dunno, fields just feel extra important this morning.
