Ascent Trip Report

"There are times when I can listen to the music in my soul
and a certain strain follows me-
if not haunting me.
And when I listen quietly and the sound of the world's turmoil is excluded momentarily from my sphere,
I feel an ethereal quality
that seems to ride upon the winds.
I become as if born upon that
wind and again feeling the mysteries and magnificence of creation.
To see life as renewed possibilities."
