Hump Day Humdinger
In honor of a great mountain and one of my
favorite quotes, I would like to talk about humps.
Humps, bumps, hurdles and frost heaves (yeah Vermont!)
are everywhere. These puppies are there to
slow you down - they are usually un-welcomed
and many times, may detour your progress.
Sometimes they do more....
While in Vermont last weekend a Frost Heave
taught me a lesson.
I was sitting shotgun in a friend's car, en-route
to a magical swimming hole, when along
came a "Frost Heave".
As any smart driver does, my friend slowed to a crawl
and passed over the Heave. This deceleration brought
me back to the car (my head was already at
the swimmin' hole) and caused me to look right.
Much to my delight, there it was, the Camels Hump -
aglow with vibrant morning light, radiating
the strength and presence that mountains are.
It was SO beautiful. We got out of the car,
breathed, stretched and shared an amazingly quiet moment.
We got back into the car and I thanked the frost Heave.
Because I was so excited about our destination,
I probably wouldn't have looked right to see the Hump.
Thanks to the Heave, I did.
Moments like these make me smile.
I figured you would enjoy it too.
It's a great metaphor for everyday and leads
me to a quote I'd like to share with you:
"One small step up the mountain often widens
your horizon in every direction"
Whether it's a step up a big mountain or a
small step over a bump, take a moment to look around.
You might be surprised at what you see.
