Hiking in the woods will take you to places you’ve never been before. I sometimes find myself standing in a spot and wondering if anyone or anything has ever stood there before me.
You can sometimes find yourself completely alone but then notice tracks in the dirt or grass that has been flattened by something else. You look up and see a bird soaring through the sky. You realize that you’re not as alone as you thought you were.
The world can feel like it belongs to us. It is not. We share these places.
