You’re wondering if I’m lonely:
OK then, yes, I’m lonely
as a plane rides lonely and level
on its radio beam, aiming
across the Rockies
for the blue-strung aisles
of an airfield on the ocean.
Adrienne Rich, Song
Its easy to think you know what you're getting yourself into, but so often you find out you don't. The trails don't line up the way you thought they would. You run out of clean water. It rains when you didn't bring rain gear.
But she's always PERFECT. Nature is perfect even when you can't see it.
