Archive for May, 2012

It was May 17, 2012. I was three days into a gruelling and ambitious seven-day hike through the eastern Grand Canyon, and I was really beginning to miss my loved ones.

I was suffering physically – battered toes, puffy blisters, stiff legs and a 50-pound pack that seemed especially heavy in the 40 degree heat – but my heart was full of gratitude and appreciation. And that’s when it happened.

I started seeing hearts.

Hearts everywhere. In rockfall and cacti. In wispy clouds and deep canyon shadows. Even in the zipper of a pouch on my backpack.

Just when I needed it – and opened my mind and my eyes to its presence – I found love all around me.
