I just thought that I’d post this beautiful tree. I found it on campus this fall. I think it’s appropriate to post this tree, especially in this time of bare and brown trees. The season of fall is never long enough. I usually try to go on as many runs as I can in the fall so I can fully enjoy the changing colours of the trees. I still do enjoy going for runs in the winter. Every season has it’s perks:) My favourite thing about running in the winter is the silence – It is my favourite “sound”. That reminds me of a discussion in one of my Religious Studies classes. The professor asked – “what is the most beautiful sound?” One student replied “Silence” and my professor said “You must be a mystic”. There is something so special about silence. It seems as though in the silence there is room to breath and room to find God. The combination of nature and silence is a powerful experience that speaks to me.
