Places like this—like Nelson, you’re gifted the beauty and escape of nature. You don’t have to ask the questions of why you’re here but you somehow feel them being asked of you.
You don’t need the answers—you won’t ever really get them but what you will get is that there’s something more than just yourself out there. Something more than you, than me, than all of us.
We’re all being asked to be something deeper and more meaningful than ourselves and nature brings us home to that feeling. Taking a step away, travelling into the unknown or a new town; even somewhere like Nelson, can remind you of that.
