Soul Food

Rebirth in process.

Here are more images from a hike at Devil’s Den State Park last summer when we had abundant rain. I humbly follow in the footsteps of men like John Muir who went to the woods to calm their minds and feed their souls. Naturalists, conservationists, and poets have been touting the merits of nature and reasons to protect her for a long time. I’m grateful to have access to protected spaces like Devil’s Den and the beautiful connection I feel when out in the woods. My heartfelt thanks to fellow conservationists and mother nature for their abundant gifts.

In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks. ~Β John Muir

Jumbled rocks creekbed with murky waters from the rain.





buzzing with life

senses awaken

enlivening my soul

cleansing, healing, nurturing

feeding body, mind, and spirit

a moment of communion

melting the cares of daily life


The fascinating trunk and bark of cedar trees.

May you find and savor what feeds your soul.
