Yesterday I was gluttonous at lunch.
It was the best meal I'd had for months!
I didn't devour a lick of food --- only the forest and the wonderful colors therein.
We are now at the height of the fall spectacular --- gold, more gold than gold, deep tangerines, peaches, oranges.
I found myself in the midst of a heavenly vision more beautiful than beauty itself.
As I watched TV at home and went outside to hang out the laundry, I gazed up at Bays Mountain, and noticed little patches of gold, orange and red among the mostly green carpet of trees.
At that time is when I decided that I had to take advantage of this once a year event. I had to go mingle and smell, walk on hallowed ground among Earth's masterpieces.
Yesterday was a day to remember forever. Even getting lost in the woods, getting cut by thorns, the sore muscles and sheer exhaustion were worth the wonderful once in a lifetime experience of being amidst the Lord's masterpiece one fall day.
