The Peace of Wild Things – Wendell Berry
“When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time, I rest in the grace of the world, and I am free.”
This quote, to me, speaks of adventure in daily life. What are your go-to adventure quotes? Feel free to share in the comments below! Another short blog this week, but you will be rewarded next week with pictures from my road trip.
I hope you are able to find the peace of wild things and stumble into adventure in your daily life. I hope you are able to be inspired by the words of others – the words that let us know we are not alone. I hope you have a good week.
