The minnows nibble on my toes in the cold water. That is why I come here. I come hear because the water and the canyon speak. Inhaling the Frio is inhaling the spirit of God and I feel him from head to toe. The water that ripples over my feet heals me and I can listen deeply. Here, I am free to write. I am filled up with the magnificence in nature – feeling the awe and feeling me, small – this is reason to go to Laity Lodge in the Canyon, to be filled up and to let go.
"poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility" - William Wordsworth
