But I wasn't out on that serene landscape with those dangers in mind.
I was out to escape the dangers of a world that, in a few short hours, would attack me with its demands, distractions, and expectations; just me, wandering, out for a hike through the desert for no other reason than to hike.
No, this hike didn’t solve some problem or accomplish some goal.
It was the fuel, the space between the logs, the breathing space for what would be a productive and important day.
This weekend, before the demands and distractions of the coming week, take time to find your breathing space.
