Thanks @hevvamoore once again ❤️Every piece of art on my body tells a story, and here's this one...
I may have grown up in the country, climbing trees and building forts, sledding in the winter and fishing in the summer. But I've lived most of my life in the city. I'm grateful, and honestly prefer to live in the city for the opportunities it offers. But I feel like along the way I lost touch with that little part of me that holds the outdoors dear to my heart.
Going to Israel this year changed that. Being in a rural area with vineyards and fields all around, watching the sunrise between the hills every morning...when I got home I couldn't sit still. Hiking, kayaking, road tripping...
Now here, in the UK, I've found such peace when I go caving, driving away from cities and into small towns and rolling hills, spending hours in that "other world" that is underground. I never had an interest in travelling the States; it held no cultural interest for me as an archaeologist. But now, although cultures and people will always be first in my heart, I've found a love for the outdoors and the peace and perspective it brings me. America holds so many varying landscapes, and I have a new perspective and a fresh desire to travel.
This year I've come alive in more ways than one, rediscovered a passion for exploring and enjoying God's creation and the variety within. As long as I find peace and wonder in creation, I can be content anywhere.
So take me to the mountains, where I can breathe deeply and think clearly.
Let my feet wander to those places where my mind finds rest.
