The View From Here

The view from the very top of the Two Hundred Acre Wood on an icy blue morning in late February. One can't tell it from this vista of snow, fog and cloud, but there is a whole realm down there and out there, pines, cedars and rocky rolling ridges stretching away into the distance.

It isn't nearly as high up as it seems in this photo, but when I am up here, it always feels as though I am on the roof of the planet and precariously perched on the summit of Chomolungma (Everest), Goddess Mother of the World. If I close my eyes for just a moment, I can feel the Old Wild Mother standing here beside me and feel Her breathing softly into the icy blue air. Miyo Lungsangma, as she is lovingly known by the clans of the Himalayas, is a fine companion for these rambles at the cusp of the seasons.

This image reminds me of when I lived on a mountain, how the sky seemed to below us with the rest of the world. They would be having a dark day and I would be hanging out with then sun!
