Living the outdoor life doesn’t always mean you like things rustic.
Sure, there can be times when life gets a little….lean….but you know it is just a matter of time before you are flush once again.
When you are slow and low to the ground and a natural observer, it is easy to see how life moves in cycles.
Hot and cold.
Light and dark.
Summer and winter.
Hate and love.
Hunger and fullness.
Inward-seeking and outward-directed.
Rather than being “better” and “worse,” these are simply one side of the coin o’ life and then the other being presented for your consideration.
Each gets their turn to contribute to the balance, to illuminate the greater good that lies beneath.
Since you were born with a shell conveniently located right on top of you, you already understand all about the pairs of opposites.
You fully comprehend “going in” and “coming out.”
You know that it is important to eat heartily while the eating is good, because there may be times when plenty is harder to come by.
You understand that sometimes it is time to rest and store up energy, precisely because you are likely to need it later on.
And you have already lived long enough to see how, with just a tiny tweak or two of perspective, simple camping can just as easily become glamping.
