Leap Day

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”

- John Muir (1838-1914) naturalist, writer

Leap Day! An extra 24 hours we only get once every four years. Muir's message is clear. If you are looking for peace in your life, go outside. Take a walk or find a tree, pond or river and sit down. Wait there, tranquility will come. You don't even have to fill out a change of address card; it will find you.
