There can be a tendency to shrink the world around us. We can travel to the far corners of the Earth in a matter of hours. We can speak to anyone, almost anywhere, instantly. In many, many ways the world is small and cramped.
But not when you go outside.
While in Arches National Park with my 2 older boys, I remembered how massive the world is to the small eyes and comprehension of children. And, as that idea settled in, I looked over the vast desert surrounding me and realized again for myself, the enormity of the earth.
I love the smallness that comes from being in the wild.
