There’s something about standing on the edge of a mountain, looking out at a bustling civilization below. I think it causes us to face the reality that we are much smaller than we ever want to believe. Whatever it is, it’s extremely refreshing for me. My husband knows this, so he took me to the most breathtaking spot that overlooks all of Santa Barbara the other night. We sat in the car, looked out at the city lights, and let the splendor of it all overwhelm us.
I think everyone needs to go to the top of a mountain once in awhile. Force yourself to stop, breath, and take it all in. I doubt you’ll regret it.
