God made the forests, the tiny stars, and the wild winds--and I think that he made them partly as a balance for that kind of civilization that would choke the spirit of joy out of our hearts. He made the great open places for the people who want to be alone with him and talk to him, away from the crowds that kill all reverence. And I think that he is glad at times to have us forget our cares and responsibilities that we may be nearer him--as Jesus was when he crept away into the wilderness to pray.
MARGARET ELIZABETH SANGSTER, "The Gypsy Spirit"
It was chilly, but so much fun. There is so much to be said to be out of the city and suburbs, and near some wide open spaces.
It's good for the soul...
