It is nearing the end of our time across the threshold in the Sierra and we have been reading many John Muir stories and quotes. Sleeping beneath the stars I feel connected to brother John as he gazed upon them from his blankets many nights as well.
"When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty. "
