On This Rock

Life grows on this rock

A little water and sun

Brings forth miracles.

Southern Arizona trails are very busy this time of year and unfortunately keeping search and rescue crews busy. Those of us who are frequently hiking the Santa Catalina Mountains are aware of some of its dangers. However, many of our winter visitors are not prepare for the rough terrain. This past Sunday the DPS copter crew had six rope rescues in the Catalinas, a one-day record.

Life is full of beauty. Notice it.
Notice the bumble bee,
the small child,
and the smiling faces.
Smell the rain,
and feel the wind.
Live your life to the fullest potential,
and fight for your dreams.

— Ashley Smith

I look at nature

Knowing its beauty is there

Because we see it.

“Oh that the desert were my dwelling place,
With only one fair spirit for my minster.
That I might forget the human race,
And hating no one, love her only.”

— Lord Byron

A Light Exists In Spring

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period —
When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay —

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.

— Emily Dickinson
