Cherish every moment

It whispers down on angels wings…

and so i began a dreamy poem one snowy evening in the mountains. No other night would be like it- nor had there been any before like it. In the morning, 36 inches of snow covered the ground…

but this is not about that night, it is about another day…another moment in time, like the first a divine appointment to drink in the wonder around me. But this morning brought other treats- watching from above as rafters risked life and limb on a crazy river, stopping to greet volunteer fireman collecting donations on the yellow line in the middle of the highway…so many moments, cherishing life. For what else should we do with life, but to live it abundantly, and cherish every moment?


At Carnifex Ferry State Park, West Virginia


The Gauley River…whitewater country…and one of the most dangerous rides on a river in the USA


Every year, hundreds experience the thrill of the rapids…and every year, a few die trying to ride the river. I do not encourage anyone to take this trip, but I do encourage everyone to live the adventure of life every day…
