Death of a loved one. News filled with unimaginably horrible events. A devastating diagnosis for someone close.
Overwhelming situations sometimes collide in a perfect storm of misfortune. The dark clouds are so heavy, it seems impossible that they will ever lift.
But they do.
At some point, a spot of light breaks through the darkness.
We feel weary when yet another crisis strikes, but wisdom gained through the years assures us that the pendulum will swing back again.
Reach out to ask for help when you need it, and offer it in turn when you’re able.
Keep moving on your path. There will be bright spots again.
This week’s Hike Notes, Madrone Trail to Salamander Flat-Wunderlich Park, leads readers on trails featuring contrasting light and shade through mixed forests of redwoods, oaks, madrone trees, and meadows with open views.
