I feel part of the universe open up to meet me
My emotion so submerged, broken down to kneel in
Once listening, the voices they came
Had to somehow greet myself, read myself
Heard vibrations within my cells, in my cells
Singing, "Ah-la-ah-ah, ah-la-ah-ah"
My love is safe for the universe
See me now, I'm bursting
On one planet, so many turns
Singing, "Ah-la-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah, ah"
Fill my heart with discipline
Put there for the teaching
In my head see clouds of stairs
Help me as I'm reaching
The future's paved with better days
Not running from something
I'm running towards the day
eddie vedder - better days
Crystal Lake... this is one of those places. You climb south out of Ouray, Colorado when the night first begins to fade. Not too many miles and minutes later you hit a high valley. then comes the easy but strangely hard part. You have to stop...and pull over when you see the sign. it's a very modest sign not ostentatious in the slightest but very easy to see. it hints of nothing that you will find... and so many drive on. then you walk maybe 50-75 yards too see something that you would never know if you kept on driving. it's like glass most every morning I've been. Bring your ground cloth or rain gear. it's very damp in the morning... when the sun finally reaches red mountain 2 & 3, you will start wondering about those people driving by as well.
you will also find a stupid grin on your face.
