Climbing some rock then a quick dip in the ocean below… For some of us, it doesn’t get any better.

Note to Self

Mountains and sea
Will live happily ever after
Knowing they are stone and water
Erosion and weather
Yin and yang

Oceans don't complain
They tide high or low
Pressure released

Mountains reject weakness
They suck it up
Hold their strength tight
Occasionally send an offspring
To the valley floor
But resent?
Bad moods because they might not have the biggest peaks?
I think not

Now humans
Will the species ever accept itself?

Nature does have its moods
But it doesn't long to be something it's not
Sea = water
Stones = rock
Sun up
Sun down
Just being
No enhancement needed
None at all

Reading this is very appropriate to me today, Odin. I like and concur with this 'Note to Self'. I wonder, reading this, if you have always felt this truth of nature, even when you were young and just starting out in the 'human need' for enhancement. My son right now is solo backpacking along Kesugi ridge in Alaska; and I hope he can feel what you write in this article, as he is surrounded by the members of nature who know themselves and just 'are'. College degrees, titles, achievements, expectations weigh heavy on our youth as they look at the bleakness of their potential to grow healthy in the current global-society malaise. Would that being in nature (hiking is free) could bring them respite of what it has brought to you in this writing. Thank you ~~ DIana

I appreciate the philosophical perspective that you have shared via your verses here, Odin. I love the comparisons. Love and peace to you,

Because of her moods, we name the seas after ladies, and mountains after their discoverer. With one exception, the Grand Tetons, The greatest pair of natural tits ever.

Some mountains, like the Matterhorn are made of sea floor sediment.

This human (some might question that claim) is very happy who he is. Admittedly, it took me quite a while to get to this point, but so what? I'm here.
